Surrey Heath Council News Feed - Tue, 02/19/2019 - 17:12
Date: Tuesday, 19 February, 2019

Entries are open for the Camberley Community Sprint Triathlon on March 31. 

 

The Sprint distance is designed to bridge the gap between beginner triathlons and the full distance.  

 

Competitors start with a 400 metre swim in the Arena Leisure Centre before cycling 20km around a picturesque Camberley course. There's a final 5km run to the finish line where a medal awaits.     

 

It's the perfect test of endurance in a professional, friendly environment. All abilities welcome, from first-timers to experienced triathletes. 

 

It's also open to enter as a team 'relay' event, where a group of three people each complete one of the legs of the triathlon (swim, cycle or run).  

 

So if you'd like to take part, but don’t think you're quite up to completing the whole triathlon, it's a great opportunity to grab two of your friends, work colleagues or family members and demonstrate some teamwork!  

 

SHBC Portfolio Holder for Places and Strategy, Cllr Craig Fennell, said: “Back by popular demand, this Sprint Triathlon event is the perfect way for beginners to dip their toe into the triathlon waters in a friendly environment, or for more experienced athletes to kick start their triathlon season. 

 

“I’d encourage anyone who is considering entering to take the plunge and go for it.  

 

“This is the latest in a series of triathlon events the Council have organised, demonstrating our commitment to supporting sports development and healthy fitness in the Borough.” 

 

Entry is open to anyone 16 and over, and costs £35. Early bird rate of £29 is available until 24 February. What are you waiting for?  

 

Places are limited so enter today at www.surreyheath.gov.uk/tri

Date: Friday, 15 February, 2019

 

The government has announced yesterday (14 February 2019) that new funds have been awarded to 57 public sector partnerships taking part in the One Public Estate programme. The new funds will provide support to use publicly-owned land and buildings more efficiently.  

 

SHAPE Surrey received the highest award in the South East and East region and the second highest award nationally.  

 

Councillor Moira Gibson, Leader, Surrey Heath Borough Council and Chair of the SHAPE Board said: “We are very pleased that we have achieved this very positive outcome for the whole of Surrey today.  These projects will unlock key opportunities which will provide new homes and deliver new investment.  It is a significant step forward for our vision for SHAPE”  

 

SHAPE has received support for four of their bids including Weybridge, Camberley town centre, Horseshoe-Banstead and North Tandridge.    

 

Councillor Tim Oliver, Leader, Surrey County Council said; “This funding is great news for the Surrey Partnership and will enable the delivery of one of Surrey County Council's key priorities to provide homes and optimise property.   We look forward to developing our proposals and plans for the county.  More information about these key projects will be shared as the proposals and plans are developed.”  

 

Karen Whelan, Chief Executive, Surrey Heath Borough Council and SHAPE Programme Sponsor said; “This recognition from One Public Estate demonstratives the strength of the development opportunities in Surrey for both the private and public sector.  We look forward to working with our partners on key strategic projects for the county.  This funding will unlock key development sites across Surrey which ultimately will provide new homes and savings for residents.  We look forward to sharing more information about the projects as they develop.” 

 

One Public Estate programme 

 

The One Public Estate programme is a joint initiative between the Cabinet Office, the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government and the Local Government Association. It now covers 95% of all local authority areas in England.  

 

 The One Public Estate programme was launched in 2013 to make better use of public-sector sites, free up space for new homes and create jobs. It encourages the emergency services, local councils and government departments to work more closely together by sharing sites and creating public-sector ‘hubs’ - where services are delivered in one place. So far, the programme has saved taxpayers £24million in running costs, created 5,745 new jobs and released land for the development of 3,336 new homes.  

Development plans which could see more than 10,000 new homes built across England and 14,000 new jobs created by 2024/25 are to be brought forward through a £15million government project.  

 

The latest round of the programme will see money and support given to more than 100 local public-sector partnerships across England, to bring forward proposals for a range of new projects on public-sector sites.

Statement about bin collections

Surrey Heath Council News Feed - Wed, 02/13/2019 - 11:11
Date: Wednesday, 13 February, 2019

Response to BBC News article about bin collections

(link to article)

In reality the 373 complaints per 1000 households statistic reported by the BBC reflects a 99.6% collection rate for more than 36,000 homes over 52 weeks of the year, due to the number of different waste and recycling collections offered to Surrey Heath residents.  

Surrey Heath Borough Council, along with three other Surrey boroughs and districts, formed Joint Waste Solutions to manage their waste collections in 2017. 

While we acknowledge that there were teething problems when Amey took over our collections contract in February 2018, we have been working hard to make improvements and reduce missed collections since then. We are pleased that the service to our customers is improving, with 99.8% successful collections made last month. 

Surrey Heath is proud to have the 5th highest recycling rate in the country, which is achieved through the commitment of our residents and the quality of our collections service.

Leader of Surrey Heath Borough Council to step down

Surrey Heath Council News Feed - Wed, 01/30/2019 - 12:21
Date: Wednesday, 30 January, 2019

The Surrey Heath Borough Council Leader has announced she will be resigning from her role after 21 years.

Councillor Moira Gibson, Ward Councillor for Windlesham for 28 years and the second longest-serving Borough and District Council Leader in Surrey, announced at an Extraordinary meeting of the Council on Wednesday 30 January that she is stepping down as Leader of the Council on 26 February 2019 and will not be standing in the local elections in May of this year. “It’s time for something new for Surrey Heath, and for me personally,” said Councillor Gibson.  

Councillor Gibson has fulfilled a number of roles on behalf of Surrey Heath during her time as Leader, most notably as Chair of the Regional Planning Committee, (later the South East Planning Committee) where she was responsible for a programme of work regarding housing allocation for the South East of England, including the provision of Gypsy and Traveller sites.

As Local Enterprise Partnerships were introduced across the country Councillor Gibson served for 6 years on the Board of the Enterprise M3 LEP. She was instrumental in developing stronger relationships with the business community to improve economic development, not only in the Borough but across the entire EM3 region. Surrey Heath Borough Council (SHBC) has secured funding from EM3 for a number of projects helping to improve the local environment, roads and transport links.

The regeneration of Camberley Town Centre has been a major priority for the Council during Councillor Gibson’s leadership. “After years of work on the project it was hugely exciting to see the demolition of the old car park before seeing The Atrium rise out of the ground,” said Councillor Gibson.

“The Atrium provided much needed new housing, as well as new retail and leisure spaces for residents and visitors to enjoy.”

SHBC went on to purchase and refurbish The Square Shopping Centre in Camberley, unlocking other town centre sites for development, most notably the London Road Development site facing the A30. “The Council has achieved a huge amount during my time as Leader and I am proud to have played my part,” added Councillor Gibson. “Local government funding has dramatically changed and we are faced with challenging times ahead. I am delighted to have been able to drive forward an investment strategy for Surrey Heath that has meant we have not had to cut any services to our residents.”

Forging stronger working relationships with neighbouring Boroughs, Districts and Counties has been a trademark of Councillor Gibson’s leadership. As Chair of the Surrey Heath Partnership, Councillor Gibson helped ensure that residents benefit, with different sections of the public sector working together for the community.

In recent years, Surrey Heath House, where SHBC is based, has become home to Surrey Heath Police, Surrey Heath NHS Clinical Commissioning Group, parts of Surrey County Council and Camberley Job Centre Plus. SHBC was one of the first authorities to make this innovative move, bringing a number of services under one roof for cost efficiency and ease of access for residents.

Councillor Gibson said: “My proudest achievements as Leader haven’t been the big projects but the things I have been able to achieve for others. Ensuring that the parents of a young disabled boy could get the facilities their son needed, for example, changed not only the life of their family but gave a young child a life he may not otherwise have had.”

She added: “I will be stepping down as Leader with the Council in the very safe hands of our Chief Executive Karen Whelan. I have always been able to count on Karen's wise counsel since she became Chief Executive in 2010 and she has been instrumental in helping the Council drive forward our ambitious plans for the Town Centre. Together we have worked tirelessly to put Camberley and Surrey Heath very firmly on the map. I would also like to pay tribute to Barry Catchpole who, as the then Chief Executive, helped guide me as Leader in my early days. 

“We have achieved a huge amount for Surrey Heath, but with challenging times ahead for Surrey there’s more to do. I wish the new Leader and new Councillors coming in in May all the very best in the future for retaining Surrey Heath’s special character.” 

Current Deputy Leader, Councillor Richard Brooks (Town Ward Councillor and Portfolio Holder for Assets) is set to be elected as the new Leader at the Full Council meeting on 27 February 2019.

Tree-mendous response to Christmas tree recycling scheme in Surrey Heath

Surrey Heath Council News Feed - Mon, 01/28/2019 - 12:05
Date: Monday, 28 January, 2019

Surrey Heath Borough Council’s popular Christmas tree recycling scheme collected more than 1,000 real Christmas trees this year.  

 

The Council-run scheme, which offered 15 drop off sites across the Borough from 5-19 January, collected 1,180 trees – an increase of almost 50% compared with the previous year. 

 

This excellent result is great news for parks in Surrey Heath, as the collected trees have been turned into wood chippings and used to replenish the paths in Green Flag Award-winning Frimley Lodge Park. 

 

Surrey Heath Portfolio Holder for Places and Strategy Cllr Craig Fennell said: “Now in its third year, the Christmas tree recycling scheme goes from strength to strength.  

 

“Thanks to everyone who took part in the scheme by dropping off their tree – it has multiple benefits, for residents, our parks and the environment in general.  

 

“Park users should see the benefits all year round through improved paths.”

 

There are plans to run the scheme again in January 2020.

The Square, Camberley. Your stylish, vibrant destination for shopping and entertainment

Surrey Heath Council News Feed - Mon, 01/28/2019 - 11:39
Date: Monday, 28 January, 2019

The first phase of The Square’s extensive refurbishment works completed this week (w/c 28 January 2019) with the installation of a stunning glass sculpture in Main Square in the centre of the building. 

 

Additional public art reflecting Camberley’s surrounding heathland is featured on light boxes throughout the centre. 

 

Councillor Moira Gibson, Leader, Surrey Heath Borough Council, said: “The Council has invested in the town centre to create a vibrant place for our residents and support a positive future for Camberley.  The completion of this phase of The Square’s refurbishment programme marks another key milestone for the town centre’s regeneration.  We are very pleased with how the centre looks today and the improvements made for both The Square’s retailers and shoppers.” 

 

Karen Whelan, Chief Executive, Surrey Heath Borough Council said, “We embarked on the refurbishment of The Square very soon after the council purchased the centre in 2016.  The building had very little investment for several years and was in need of a refresh.  We wanted a modern, bright contemporary design, which we feel we have achieved.  The centre looks superb today and I’d like to thank everyone who has worked on this project and the retailers and management team at The Square for their continued support.” 

 

The Square is a 480,000 sq ft covered shopping centre and is home to more than 150 national and independent retailers. Brands include Smiggle, O2, TopShop, Jack Wills, River Island and Monsoon, anchored by House of Fraser, Boots and Primark, all benefitting from an average weekly footfall of more than 170,000. 

 

Surrey Heath Borough Council purchased the shopping centre as part of its key priority of regenerating Camberley town centre. Within the first year of ownership SHBC commissioned an extensive refurbishment of the 30-year-old building.  Haskoll architects were commissioned to design the new scheme which included new flooring, lighting, fascias and public art.   In addition, the centre was rebranded The Square by SHBC in September 2017.  

 

David Leech, Director, Haskoll said; “The Haskoll team are proud to have helped Surrey Heath Borough Council bring about the transformation of The Square, Camberley. We have very much enjoyed working on the first phase of this project. The design simplifies the interior of the centre, transforming it into a modern environment for all to enjoy. The colours, textures and artwork to the light boxes take their reference from the Surrey heathland and re-connect the centre to Camberley.” 

 

A second phase of works is planned which will include Cambridge Square outside House of Fraser and opening up Obelisk Way by Boots as part of the London Road site development.  More details about this work will be shared once the designs have been finalised. 

 

Main Square car park has also had significant improvements made to it by SHBC; including new surfacing on the levels and ramp, widening of the bays and LED lighting, making the arrival to Camberley by car an easier and more enjoyable process.

Camberley Be Enchanted 2018 - Supporting town centre businesses, driving footfall and bringing enjoyment and festive cheer to shoppers and visitors

Surrey Heath Council News Feed - Wed, 12/19/2018 - 10:20
Date: Wednesday, 19 December, 2018

Surrey Heath Borough Council led a festive campaign for Camberley town centre bringing an event to the town centre every weekend throughout November and December 2018 leading up to Christmas.  

 

The event campaign drew on support from the town’s Business Improvement District (BID) ‘Collectively Camberley’, The Square shopping centre, Camberley Theatre and The Atrium; a large centre which is host to shops, a Vue Cinema, soft play and bowling – bringing together cross-town events into one uniquely branded event programme. 

 

Be Enchanted in Camberley’s events were varied and unique.  They included a Christmas Parade with Santa arriving in Camberley in a horse drawn carriage accompanied by local schools, dance groups, gymnastic clubs, faith groups and community groups.  A Nutcracker ballet event was held in The Square shopping centre to coincide with Vienna Festival Ballet’s Nutcracker ballet performance in Camberley theatre.  The event included professional dancers and dances performed by Camberley’s Bluebell Ballet School.  Other events in the Be Enchanted programme included music concerts, carol singing and finding eight reindeer positioned all around town after being decorated by local schools. 

In addition to the event programme Camberley’s Santa’s Grotto was given a significant overhaul.  A unit in The Square was transformed into a magical winter wonderland complete with singing penguins, a cosy cottage for Santa and an enchanted forest walkway.  The windows of the former BHS retail unit at Ashwood House were decorated by council staff to create beautiful Christmas displays.  Hillier Garden Centre provided the town with many snowy Christmas trees for Santa’s grotto, winter forest and the children’s Christmas craft area, ’Pixie House,' in Cambridge Square. 


The campaign was enhanced by strong branding and marketing collateral which was created in-house by SHBC and incorporated the town centre partners.  This was supported by an extensive online and offline marketing programme compiled by SHBC, The Square and Collectively Camberley to promote Be Enchanted in Camberley across digital, print, radio adverts, door drops and bus backs.  Secondary catchments were particularly targeted to drive footfall from neighbouring towns including Aldershot, Fleet, Bracknell, Sandhurst and Farnborough. 

 

Data received during the campaign has shown the Be Enchanted campaign has had significant positive impact to Camberley’s visitors. 

 

The Christmas Parade held on Saturday 1 December increased visitors by 10% from the same date in 2017. 

 

The Christmas Switch Light On event on Saturday 1 November had increased footfall by 2.5% from the same event in 2017. 

 

Data gathered at the light on event demonstrated Camberley is being visited by lots of people living in secondary catchments. 

 

Councillor Moira Gibson, Leader, Surrey Heath Borough Council said;  

 

“As part of our investment in Camberley town centre we are actively supporting our local retailers and businesses by organising these fantastic events together with The Square, Camberley Theatre, The Atrium and Collectively Camberley to attract people into the town.  These events also provided wonderful free entertainment for our local families and communities.  Be Enchanted has been a huge success and many thanks to everyone who has helped to organise the events and also to everyone who has come into Camberley to support them.  We hope everyone has enjoyed Camberley this Christmas.” 

 

Karen Whelan, CEO, Surrey Heath Borough Council said; 

 

“Camberley has been an amazing place as we led up to Christmas this year.  As part of SHBC’s investment in Camberley we are committed to supporting the town and doing everything we can to enable it to thrive and continue to be a great place to visit.  The Be Enchanted event programme has been carefully designed to provide something for all our residents, in particular families and children.  Next year we plan to build on this success with the Be Entertained event programme in 2019.  More details to follow very soon.”

Surrey Heath Borough Council Executive have approved an Outline Business Case to enable the Blackwater Valley partnership to move forward with improving air quality on the A331. 

In July 2017 the Government published The National Air Quality Plan for Nitrogen Dioxide, which sets out how the Government will ensure that compliance with air quality limits is achieved in the shortest time possible. 

A key part of the Plan is a requirement on local authorities identified as having predicted exceedances of the statutory annual mean EU limit value for nitrogen dioxide (NO2) within their areas, to undertake feasibility studies to explore a range of measures to reduce those levels and therefore improve air quality.  

Surrey Heath Borough Council, Guildford Borough Council and Rushmoor Borough Council were directed by the Secretary of State for the Environment to submit a feasibility study for reducing the concentrations of nitrogen dioxide along the Blackwater Valley (A331) Road in the shortest time possible.  

The Plan identified a straight-line exceedance on a short section of the A331 Blackwater Valley Relief Road, within Surrey Heath Borough, as having predicted exceedances of the EU Ambient Air Quality Directive limits of NO2. 

The study has been completed by the Blackwater Valley Partnership, made up of the three Borough Councils, Surrey County Council and Hampshire County Council.  

At the SHBC Executive meeting on 11 December, approval of the Outline Business Case (OBC) was given prior to submission to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) by 31 December 2018. 

The OBC identified a preferred measure to achieve compliance with the NO2 levels - a 50mph speed limit for a stretch of the A331 in the areas of Rushmoor Borough Council and Surrey Heath Borough Council. The stretch of road currently has a speed limit of 70mph. 

The proposals and OBC have also been agreed by the other councils in the Blackwater Valley Partnership.  

Surrey Heath Portfolio Holder for Environment and Health, Cllr Vivienne Chapman, said: “Improving air quality within the Borough is a priority for the Council and the collaborative work that the Blackwater Valley Group have completed to determine a measure which will reduce nitrogen dioxide levels along the A331 is a positive step towards achieving this.  

“Air pollution has a significant impact on public health and implementation of a speed reduction on this road will contribute to better air quality within the Borough, making Surrey Heath a healthier place in which to live, work and visit.”  

The work done so far on developing the feasibility study has been funded by a grant from the Joint Air Quality Unit (JAQU) of Defra and the Department for Transport (DfT).  

Following approval of the OBC by the Secretary of State for the Environment, and their agreement to fund the proposed measures, the next step would be statutory public consultation by Hampshire and Surrey County Councils as the relevant Highways authorities. 

The approximate cost of implementing the measures in the OBC is £450,000, and will be implemented subject to approval and full funding from JAQU.

SHBC and its responsibilities towards homelessness in the Borough

Surrey Heath Council News Feed - Mon, 12/17/2018 - 18:53
Date: Monday, 17 December, 2018

There has been some recent social media activity regarding homelessness in Surrey Heath. Please read our response below: 

  

“SHBC have not ‘refused to work with’ the All Night Café (ANC) in Camberley – we have had meetings with their staff and continue to welcome a discussion with those running the ANC.  

  

As part of the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017 our focus on prevention (through The Hope Hub and our other housing services) as mentioned in the ANC’s post is actually a statutory responsibility.  

  

This legislation was introduced to ensure Councils work to firstly prevent, and then if required relieve, homelessness.   

  

Rather than ‘refusing to acknowledge’ the issue of homelessness, we are working hard to manage our responsibilities, and the Housing Team provide a comprehensive advice service to anyone local to Surrey Heath approaching us for assistance. 

  

This includes offering temporary accommodation or B&B to those people who fall within the categories of priority need set out in the legislation. 

  

Our Benefits team also do all we can to assist people in applying for the benefits and allowances they are entitled to. 

  

To endorse or recommend services by another organisation SHBC needs to ensure that overall governance meets standards relevant for those accessing the service. There are many safeguarding challenges that must be managed. We have met with the ANC in order to support them in this regard. 

  

The ANC also draws people from an area wider than Surrey Heath – the people using those services are the responsibility of the local authority where there is a local connection, rather than where the shelter is. For example, if someone using the ANC comes from Farnborough, Rushmoor BC are their local authority. 

  

Following our own research into homelessness, Churches Together have developed The Hope Hub – which offers a package of support for homeless people to help address the reason for homelessness in the first place, treating the cause rather than the symptoms.  

 

They’re based on London Road, Camberley - more information can be found at https://thehopehub.org.uk/ 

 

The Hope Hub and ANC work well together. 

  

We recognise that in Surrey Heath we are lucky to have a number of volunteers that give up their time and personal resources to help others. There are a number of initiatives across the Borough that rely on the support of our residents, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those that work tirelessly to help others.”

Revo Gold Award winners announced

Surrey Heath Council News Feed - Fri, 12/07/2018 - 09:38
Date: Friday, 7 December, 2018

 

Surrey Heath Borough Council (SHBC) recently entered Camberley town centre into the Revo Gold Re:generate Award 2018, which recognises Local Authorities redefining place-making excellence.  SHBC was shortlisted for the award after a stringent judging process which included a visit to SHBC and Camberley town centre by Revo’s judging panel of industry experts. 

 

The award was announced this week and our congratulations go to Hull City Council for their brilliant regeneration project ‘Destination Hull’.  

 

Although we didn’t win this year Revo’s Jury were hugely impressed with the scale and ambition evident for the regeneration of Camberley.  They said;   

 

‘The variety and boldness of the schemes, from the shopping centre refurbishment plans, to the redevelopment of the London Road site to open up the covered shopping street bringing residential uses into the heart of the scheme. Repurposing of existing buildings also featured which was encouraging. It was clear that the team were passionate about their town centre and their initiatives and that clear skills existed in the group which were being employed elsewhere in the county for other authorities. The jury thought that this was quite remarkable.” 

 

Councillor Moira Gibson, Leader, Surrey Heath Borough Council said;  

 

“Many congratulations to the team at Hull City Council.   

 

We are extremely proud that Camberley was shortlisted for this national award and the great feedback our schemes have received from Revo.  The council is firmly committed to Camberley and driving forward positive change and developments that support the town and its economic prosperity.”    

 

Karen Whelan, CEO, Surrey Heath Borough Council said;  

 

“Many congratulations to Hull City Council.  Although Camberley did not win this award this year, we are so pleased that the regeneration schemes were recognised by the Jury for their variety and boldness.  We have a committed team at SHBC working very hard to deliver a vibrant exciting town centre which provides homes, shops, social activities and economic opportunities for the borough.  Watch this space as there is still lots more to come for Camberley.” 

 

Camberley Be Inspired 

  

Surrey Heath Borough Council was recognised by Revo for the regeneration projects in Camberley town centre.   

 

These began with The Atrium, a large mixed-use scheme built on a seven-acre site which completely transformed the Park Street side of Camberley.  The Atrium completed in 2008 and brought homes, a cinema, shops and restaurants to this part of Camberley.  Park Street was also greatly improved with pedestrianisation, and the creation of seating and spill out areas for the restaurants occupying this area.  

 

SHBC’s current projects include the purchase and subsequent £8million refurbishment of The Square shopping centre, ensuring the centre remains an attractive place for shoppers to visit and for retail businesses to thrive.   

 

The conversion of Ashwood House, a former office building purchased by SHBC to enable its redevelopment, is also well underway which will bring 116 new apartments to Camberley and a new retail space.    

 

Substantial projects to improve the town centre car parks, Princess Way and the High Street have also begun.  

 

SHBC is also in the final stages of securing a developer partner for the 5.5 acre site next to the A30 between Park Street and the High Street for a significant mixed use scheme of retail, residential, leisure and public realm.

Recycle your Christmas tree for free

Surrey Heath Council News Feed - Mon, 12/03/2018 - 11:10
Date: Monday, 3 December, 2018

Following the success of the scheme over the past two years, Surrey Heath residents can recycle their real Christmas tree for free in 2019 as part of a Council-run scheme – and help maintain the Borough’s parks at the same time. 

 

Between 5-19 January 2019, Surrey Heath Borough Council will be running 15 drop off sites across the Borough, where residents can drive in and leave their ‘real’ Christmas tree in a designated area. 

 

At the end of this period, the trees will be chipped and the resulting wood chippings will be used to replenish paths in our parks. 

 

Last year, more than 800 trees were recycled via the scheme, which helped restock paths in Frimley Lodge Park. 

 

Surrey Heath Places and Strategy Portfolio Holder Cllr Craig Fennell said: “This popular scheme has several benefits, for residents, our parks and the environment in general, and I encourage people to use it once the festive period comes to an end.”  

 

The sites where Christmas trees can be dropped off are:

Restrictions apply: only real Christmas trees can be accepted for this event, and all decorations must be removed from the trees before they are left at the drop-off points.
