DEVELOPERS have been given the go-ahead to build a six-storey office block on the former Solomons' car showroom site at Camberley.

But before work can start they must agree to pay a £157,000 "sweetener" for transport improvements in the adjoining Yorktown area.

The proposed improvements include the construction of a Riverside Way-Yorktown link road, and a new bus service between the Yorktown industrial estate and the town's railway station.

Cycle routes and seven Toucan crossings at The Meadows gyratory system have also been incorporated in the scheme.

Surrey Heath Council planners were told in a report that the measures would make a "significant contribution towards addressing many of the transportation problems in the Yorktown area".

They agreed that the building has been designed to a high quality and would be a fitting landmark at the London Road gateway to the town.
