For quite a while, Camberley’s Mall owners have been promising that they will upgrade the current Mall premises this year. A figure of £4.5 million has been mentioned as the cost involved.
A planning application for a ‘mock up’ of the new-look Mall has now been submitted. The mock up – if approved – will be outside the O2 shop. This is apparently what it will look like:
It looks like the new ‘cladding’ will hide the walkways over the shop fronts. This could make the Mall look narrower inside than at present. Will this matter? Fortunately, there are promising omens – the Mall has close links with the Kingfisher Centre in Redditch, and the Kingfisher Centre has been improved in recent years so that it now looks quite smart..
