Montagu Evans has acted as lead adviser to the Council for 6 years to deliver their vision to make Camberley a vibrant town centre. Given the rapidly changing town centre retail investment climate this has meant we have needed to show innovation and flexibility which has resulted in the Council taking on a greater level of direct participation (and control) to bring forward development.
We represented the Council in Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber) proceedings. All cases were successfully settled by negotiation, thereby removing the Council's exposure to incur further process costs.
Having led the preparation of a town-wide master plan and delivery plan, the approved vision has provided a platform for asset purchases and partnering to fulfil the Council’s delivery strategy. This includes acting for the Council on the £100million acquisition of the Mall Shopping Centre and adjoining department in 2016. We led a multi-disciplinary team for the redevelopment options for two town centre sites to deliver 135 residential units. This informed an OJEU procurement in 2016 which we led, resulting in the appointment of Berkeley Southern as the Council’s partner for the £30m schemes. Montagu Evans act as the Development Manager, Asset Manager, Property Manager and Planning Consultant and run and operate an existing £6m p/a rent roll and four development projects with an anticipated output of circa 500 residential units.
