BUILDING A SPECIALIST VETERINARY CENTRE – NEW FOR 2016/17
Its been a long time in the making but work has begun on the preparation of the site for our new specialist veterinary centre!
We hope that work will be completed by late 2016/early 2017. In the meantime we will post updates as the site progresses.
The story so far:
The site on Darby Green Road, Camberley, previously accommodated the public house known as The Greyhound. In 1984 it was renamed The Spennys and boasted great beer, great food and a friendly atmosphere. A look though an old Spennys menu reveals several mouth watering options including a Sunday Roast for only £4.95! The Spennys then underwent major renovation becoming Canterburys but was eventually closed in 2008.
The building has stood empty since then, targeted by vandals and quickly falling into disrepair. Planning permission was granted in 2009 for the conversion of the public house to a veterinary referral centre.
Due to damage it became no longer viable to simply convert the building. A new planning application was submitted for the demolition of the public house and erection of a two storey veterinary practice. This application was granted in August 2015. Significant care was taken to ensure no bats were present during demolition and this was overseen by a registered ecologist. Demolition took place in early November and building work is due to begin soon.
