Council seeks residents’ views

Published: 10 July 2018

Residents are being asked for their views on the future development of the site of Tower House and Ashbourne House on Chalvey Park.

Slough Borough Council is inviting residents to attend a drop in session to view proposals to redevelop the site which include plans to demolish the existing buildings and build new, high quality, well managed housing comprising a mixture of one, two and three bed homes and mews houses.

The scheme will provide much needed social and affordable housing and will include a number of shared ownership properties to help first time buyers purchase their own homes.

The proposed redevelopment will improve the current appearance of the site, making it safer and more secure. New areas of public open space are also included within the proposal.

Plans to redevelop the Tower and Ashbourne site will be on display at Chalvey Community Centre (Room 1), The Green, SL1 2SP on Tuesday 17 July from 3-7pm.

The council is keen to hear residents’ views on the draft proposals and the Tower and Ashbourne project team will be on hand to answer questions on the plans.

Councillor Mohammed Nazir, cabinet member for housing, said: “Tower and Ashbourne Houses have been home to many Slough residents over the years but they have now come to the end of their useful lives.

“We are committed to delivering high quality, social and affordable housing in Slough and we’d like residents to help us shape our plans.

“Our vision for housing in Slough is simple. We want everybody – whether they’re buying, privately renting or in need of social housing in the town – to have access to a decent quality home.”

A further public consultation event will be held in late autumn with a view to submit a planning application for the site by the end of the year.

If you are unable to attend the consultation event and would like more information, or wish to comment on the draft proposals, please email TandA@slough.gov.uk.
