Here are a few quotes from the borough council. They set out the council’s aspirations for Camberley’s ‘public realm’ – in other words, our streets.
“The High Street should have a distinct character, defined by the use of high quality materials.”
[The intention is to] “Develop a high quality, restrained and durable materials palette to ensure the longevity and attractiveness of the town.”
“Irrespective of the material used, a high quality of workmanship is essential for the quality of finish and the longevity of the landscape. The aim is to create a cohesive, coordinated palette of hard landscape materials”
“The use of high quality materials in a clutter free environment helps to create a legible public realm.”
“[We plan ] high quality paving to pavements” and a “Simple coordinated paving palette”

Who’s kidding whom?? Come on council, stop dreaming, and just DO IT!
