Maidenhead: Revamp Plans Delayed
13 December 2012, 14:16
Multi-million pound plans to regenerate Maidenhead have been delayed for two months for more discussions.
The Kings Triangle development will include a new shopping area, apartments, new public open spaces and a direct, shop-lined pedestrianised link into the Nicholson's centre.
The plans should created around 800 jobs in the town centre. Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Borough council has told Heart 92% of people who attended public exhibitions last July backed the development.
There have been some changes to the proposals since they were first shown during initial consultations. The heights of buildings have been reduced and there are new links to connect streets.
There was a meeting last night to discuss the plans, however, the council says the application would be deferred for two months to allow more work to be done on the application.
The majority of members on the panel felt more work should be done on the number of areas including overall viability, traffic and congestion, effects on public transport and links into the existing town centre.
If approved in February 2013 - it could open by Christmas 2015.
