Theresa May has welcomed the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead’s decision to approve plans for ‘The Landing’ – a major redevelopment project in Maidenhead town centre. The £230 million scheme will transform the area around Broadway, Queen Street and King Street with new shops, restaurants and housing. The development was approved by the Maidenhead Development Control Panel last night.
The site, previously known as the King’s Triangle, is a key part of the town centre and has been the focus of several planning proposals over recent years. Approval for ‘The Landing’ should see hundreds of new jobs created, increase commercial activity in the town centre, and encourage more firms to locate in Maidenhead. Development works are likely to be completed in time for the opening of Crossrail in 2019.
Commenting, Theresa said: “This is an important step forward for the town centre and is a key part of the wider work going on to ensure a successful future for Maidenhead. We want to see more shops and businesses attracted to the town centre so that it can become a vibrant hub for the community, and so that we can continue to create jobs and support the local economy.”
“This decision is a boost for Maidenhead, although it will be important to look at the detailed consent carefully when it comes up to make sure this development fits with the rest of the town centre and the town as a whole.”
