The scheme is part of the Blackwater valley Gold Grid package and is an integral part of strategy for developing Camberley as a major commercial centre. The aim of the public realm improvements in the centre of Camberley is that they will enhance its accessibility, viability, improving the visitor and resident experience of place, integrate transport modes and give pedestrians more space and priority in the town centre. The key components of the scheme are to make the High Street better for pedestrians and provide an important hub with an increase in the quality of the usable open space. This will be achieved by partial pedestrianisation of High Street and improvements to public realm on Knoll Walk and Princess Way.
The scheme also compliments the Camberley Town Centre Highway Improvements scheme along the A30, which includes improvements for buses and pedestrians
