£100m Redevelopment for Maidenhead

The Chapel Arches development project that plans to transform the town centre was given approval by the Royal Borough this week. The proposals made by Shanly Homes and Sorbon Estates aim to transform Maidenhead and deliver residential and retail units along the proposed restored waterways.

The £100m redevelopment scheme will make way for increased trade through new shops and restaurants and work in conjunction with the Maidenhead Waterways Restoration Group (MWRG) which submitted a planning application to open up York Stream.

Air Quality and Noise Aid Planning Application

REC was pleased to help the transformation of Maidenhead by delivering the Air Quality Assessment and Noise Impact Assessment for the proposed scheme’s planning application. Based on the results of REC’s assessments, it was concluded that the development was fully compliant with all relevant planning policies and, as such, consent should not be refused on air quality or noise grounds.

Four separate applications for the Chapel Arches in Maidenhead were approved by Royal Borough councillors during a meeting last week. The scheme will now move forward bringing together the various strands of mixed use development into a cohesive regeneration project that will bring jobs, new homes, new shops and eateries to the area.
