A development with hundreds of homes and new shops looks finally set to happen in a prime location of Slough- 29 years on.
The regeneration plans are for Slough’s Stoke Wharf and will see land at the end of the Grand Union Canal completely transformed. After 29 years in the pipeline, members of Slough Borough Council’s planning committee have finally given the thumbs up to revamp the brownfield site into 312 new homes, new public open space, and some retail units. The new housing includes a mix of studio, one, two, three and four bed apartments. There will also be family homes and two bedroom houses.
The applicants for the plans were Stoke Wharf Developments – a partnership between Slough Urban Renewal, Muse, and the Canal and River Trust.
A majority of councillors were in favour of the scheme with only one member, Cllr Smith, voting against at a planning committee on February 10.
Forty Shillings worked with Stoke Wharf Developments and its professional team to manage the pre-application consultation and engagement with the local community.
