Our Key Objectives for 2021 – 2026

KEEPING IT VIBRANT

We will continue our work to ensure that Camberley Town Centre remains a place that people know about and want to come to whether it’s to shop, for businesses or just to meet and have a good time. Our campaigns and events will show the best of the town as we come out of recovery and grow.

KEEPING IT SAFE AND WELCOMING

We want Camberley Town Centre to be a place for all to be able to come and enjoy. Making the town look attractive, feel safe and ensuring that we are supporting our community is a key objective over the next 5 years.

KEEPING IT TOGETHER

We have made huge efforts to ensure we are engaged with our Business Community and key stakeholders. We will continue to ensure that Collectively Camberley remains at the forefront as the town recovers and grows and in representing your views and interests.

Steve Coburn, Chairman, Collectively Camberley says:

“In a year where all businesses, and in particular the UK’s High Streets, have faced a lot of uncertainties and challenges, it’s been really pleasing to see that Collectively Camberley continues to make a real difference to our Town Centre. I’ve been proud to work with the BID Team and the many volunteers from our town’s vibrant business community to deliver some really exciting initiatives in Camberley.  It’s thanks to this hard work that we’ve been able to achieve so much this year. I look forward to working with you to make next year even better. Thank you for your support.”
