Learn more about latest regeneration site

Published: Monday, 9th July 2018

There’s a chance for residents and businesses to find out more about one of the Royal Borough’s key regeneration sites at a series of public consultation events.

Members of the public are invited to look through the plans for Saint-Cloud Way in more detail, ask questions and submit their feedback at the consultation events in the Nicholsons Centre, Maidenhead, on Thursday 19 and Friday 20 July.

The first phase of redevelopment would see the demolition of the Tenpin bowling alley to make way for a temporary car park to ensure Maidenhead has no net loss of parking spaces while other regeneration works take place. A planning application for this part of the project has already been submitted.

The next phase would see the area completely redeveloped as part of the council’s joint venture with Countryside, into a mixed use development including housing, community and commercial properties – with 30 percent of residential units set as affordable.

The full redevelopment of the site will take place once the new Braywick Leisure Centre has been completed and the Magnet can relocate, leaving no break in service.

Cllr David Evans, cabinet member for Maidenhead regeneration and Maidenhead, said: “The regeneration of Maidenhead is taking strides forward this year and these consultation events are another great opportunity for residents and businesses to learn more and ask questions.

“Once Braywick Leisure Centre is complete the Magnet will be demolished to make way for the proposed regeneration of the whole site in Saint-Cloud Way, breathing new life into the area and creating much-needed housing, including 30 percent affordable housing.”

Malcolm Wood, project director at Countryside, said: “Saint-Cloud Way is the second of the joint development sites to be brought forward through our partnership with the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead which will see the transformation of the area, bringing greater connectivity and new homes to Maidenhead.

“We look forward to welcoming residents to our exhibition to view our plans, ask questions and give us feedback on the scheme.”

The planning application to demolish the Tenpin bowling alley and create a temporary car park was submitted to the council at the end of June and is available to view online by searching the application number 18/01796/FULL.

If plans are approved the bowling alley would close at the end of August 2018 and demolition would take place in September 2018.

The consultation events will run 2pm to 8pm on Thursday 19 July and 12pm to 5pm on Friday 20 July at Unit 26 (Opposite Tesco), Nicholsons Centre, Maidenhead.
