Benson for Beds – a new dawn

We’ve watched the former Benson’s for Beds building in Camberley’s High Street with interest for a while.  Over the months, it’s boasted three different agents’ boards:


A few years ago, planning permission was given to completely re-develop the building.  But we’re pretty sure that this has expired, and certainly it hasn’t been implemented.  So what’s happening to the building we’ll have to wait and see.

  1. Do not think that the planning permission has expired …. the did some work to the rear of the property just in time! They pulled down a fence and put footings in for a wall! There have been squatters around at the back and the parking gates are damaged.

    • Thanks Ian. I think the ‘rules’ are that significant work has to be undertaken before the planning permission expires in order for it to remain ‘live’. Pulling a fence down probably wouldn’t qualify, but I guess that footings – if they’re for the building rather than eg just a perimeter wall – probably would.
