The proposals will make efficient use of this highly sustainable brownfield site in close proximity to Slough Railway Station to bring forward new housing to contribute to meeting the Borough’s housing need. The high-quality contemporary design befits this prominent corner location, particularly in key views from those approaching from the train station to the North. The proposal will tie with the changing context of the area and other emerging development.
The proposals have been informed by positive pre-application discussion and advice from the Council and align with the priorities of the emerging Spatial Strategy for Slough as set out in the November 2020 Regulation 18 Plan. The plan sets out the strategy for addressing the shortfall of 5,000 new homes in the Borough by ensuring that development is located in the most accessible locations, including the area north of the station and the Stoke Road corridor.
