Surrey Heath History
Named after its heathland, Surrey Heath is a borough covering 37 square miles in the north west of Surrey. The borough has a rich heritage, dating back to the Neolithic period. During the middle ages it was a royal hunting ground and around the 19th century it developed a reputation as a health resort as a result of its pure air. Its largest town is Camberley.

However our highly trained staff have the expertise to address more challenging planning and design issues. We achieve the aims of our clients both on an aesthetic and functional level whilst adhering to regulations set out by the local planning authority.

Planning in Surrey Heath
The population of Surrey Heath at the time of the most recent census in 2011 was 86,200, whilst the number of households was 31,700. These figures showed a 7.3% and 5.7% increase from ten years previously. With the rise in population and number of households in Surrey Heath, plus the current shortage of housing within the South East, there is a growing demand for new builds and extensions. Get Planning and Architecture is expert in both of these and, if you are planning an extension or new build, our team of architects and planners can guide you expertly through the process.
The main areas of Surrey Heath are: Bagshot, Bisley, Chobham, Frimley Green, Heatherside, Lighwater, Mytchett and Deepcut, Old Dean, Parkside, St Michaels, St Pauls, Town, Watchetts, West End and Windlesham.

On 1st July 2014, Surrey Heath Borough Council set out their vision for the regeneration of Camberley – Surrey Heath’s largest town. The £310million project will involve transforming some of the town centre’s main spaces and streets, including the High Street and the London Road Block, and large improvements to infrastructure, including changes to the M3 between junctions 2 and 4A. The council had submitted planning applications for the project in 2015. If agreed, the work was estimated to be finished by 2018.
