New venture in Slough set to transform the borough

Developments  |  1 February 2016

A new partnership has been formed to deliver a series of exciting new projects across Slough. Slough Urban Renewal is a new collaboration between Morgan Sindall Investments Limited and Slough Borough Council and will deliver a broad range of residential, commercial and retail schemes designed to enhance the lives of those who live and work in the borough.

The partnership’s first residential scheme is now underway. The aptly named Milestone, will be the first in a series of exciting new residential schemes, providing vital, quality housing within the town. Located on Ledgers Road on the former Town Hall site and situated close to the town centre, Milestone will comprise 73 units in total, a mixture of one and two bedroom apartments and two and three bedroom houses. The homes, which will all be highly specified, will set the standard for the town’s future residential developments and will offer both private homes and those for affordable rent. Help to Buy will be available across the scheme to assist those keen to take their first step onto the housing ladder.

Alastair Gourlay, a Board Member at Slough Urban Renewal said: “Slough has huge potential and it is our aim to deliver a host of projects that will enhance what the town already has to offer. Works to deliver Milestone are already underway and the development will really allow us to showcase the high standard of housing that we will be delivering across the borough. We have already had significant interest in the homes at Milestone, which is really exciting for us. Those who purchase here will be able to enjoy a stunning new home, while becoming part of a thriving new community.”


Transforming towns for a better future

Milestone is expected to launch in spring next year, with the first of the homes due to be ready for occupation by autumn 2016. However, those interested in securing a new home here are being urged to register their interest now to ensure they are the first to hear when these sought after new homes are released for sale. Interested buyers can register their interest by calling 01753 326146.

Slough Urban Renewal’s vision is to transform local peoples’ lives and livelihoods, as well as the physical character of Slough, creating more opportunity and prosperity for the town. By 2019, Slough Urban Renewal aims to have achieved its target to make Slough a move-to destination, a desirable place to both live and work and where children can reach their full potential. It is its aim to make Slough one of the most attractive places in the country to do business – with excellent communications and business accommodation and a skilled and available workforce.
