WCN Editorial Team 4 Apr 2019 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Surrey Heath Borough Council has selected Kier Property, the development arm of Kier Group, to regenerate a two-hectare site on London Road in Camberley.

Around £200m is planned to be invested in the revamp of the town centre site to include residential and commercial elements, as well as new public realm. The site is located between London Road, Park Street, High Street and Obelisk Way.

Kier Property regeneration managing director Andrew Storey said: “We are delighted to have been chosen by Surrey Heath Borough Council to develop this important site in Camberley.

“We believe our proposals will provide vibrance to the town given the mixed-use nature of them and we look forward to working alongside Karen Whelan and her team over the next few years to deliver our vision utilizing all the skills of Kier Group.”

Surrey Heath Borough Council said that the redevelopment of the London Road Site is intended to provide an attractive gateway to Camberley as well as improve the town centre.

Kier will be responsible for mixed-use redevelopment and a complete transformation of the town, creating a new community for people, the council said.

Surrey Heath Borough Council CEO Karen Whelan said: “The proposed scheme will completely transform a run-down area of the town centre and create a thriving new town square surrounded by a large mixed-use development, including retail, residential, parking and new outside space.

“This announcement marks the end of the procurement process and work will now begin on surveying the site and submitting the planning application shortly.”

Separately, Kier has been selected by the Department for Education (DfE) to design and construct a new 880-place academy Dixons Sixth Formin Bradford, UK.

The new £13m Bradford Sixth Form Academy, which will be based on Old Bowling Lane in Douglas Mill, is being built for Bradford-based Multi-Academy Trust, Dixon Academies Trust, as the Trust’s first standalone academy for 16-18 year olds.

Work involves a full refurbishment of the site and construction of a new build sports hall.

The sixth form is planned to open to its first cohort of 360 students in August 2019.
