Hundreds of local residents visit the Stoke Wharf exhibition

Developments  |  23 September 2019

Last week, over 550 people took part in the consultation by viewing proposals at the Slough Canal Festival. Local residents were able to see the indicative plans and talk to the design team that have developed the scheme. 

The exhibition will be on display at The Curve, William St, Slough SL1 1XY between:

  • 2.30pm – 6.30pm, Monday 23rd September 2019
  • 2.30pm – 6.30pm, Tuesday 24th September 2019

Andy Howell, General Manager of Slough Urban Renewal, said:

“It was a pleasure to see so many local residents at the Slough Canal Festival and talk to them about our vision and plans.  It was great to hear everyone’s feedback and we will be reviewing these over the next few weeks.  We hope that more residents will pop in and see the plans at the Curve.”

Slough Urban Renewal and Waterside Places are working to redevelop the area around Stoke Wharf, which sits at the end of the Slough branch of the Grand Union Canal.  The plans involve bringing the canal back to life and creating a mixed-use development with around 270 new homes, improvements to the Bowyers recreation ground and enhancements to the tow path and cycling routes.  A planning application will be submitted later this year.

More information about the proposals can be found at www.stokewharf.commonplace.is, where local residents can also get involved in shaping the plans.
