Improving Farnborough town centre
Our plans for the future of Farnborough town centre.
We've been working with businesses, landowners and developers to take forward our plans for the future of Farnborough town centre and to improve it for all.
Together, our aim is to attract new investment, unlock new development and bring about the change that Farnborough needs.
As part of these plans we have already completed two important projects:
- The first is a document called the Farnborough town centre prospectus which sets out how we'd like to see Farnborough town centre develop over the next ten years
- The second was a project to improve the Queensmead shopping area to make it more attractive to shoppers and businesses. This work was completed October 2013
We have appointed architects Allies and Morrison to help us move forward with our regeneration plans and some of the key development sites identified in the prospectus. This includes proposals for a town centre retail park at Westmead and further developments at Princes Mead.
As part of the Farnborough prospectus, the area including the library, the old police station, the leisure centre and the community centre has been identified as a key site for regeneration. The next step will be for the council to devise a masterplan, working with Allies and Morrison, which will aim to make better use of the land and make a positive contribution to the ongoing regeneration of Farnborough town centre.
The new Vue cinema opened on in Farnborough on 7 May and restaurants at The Meads are also nearing completion. For details of what's on at the cinema please see the Farnborough Vue listings
