Council to hold second Tower and Ashbourne drop in session

Published: 13 November 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 first invited residents to share their views at a drop in session in July, to see proposals for redeveloping the site.

A second drop in session is being held on Thursday 15 November to reach stakeholders not already captured.

Proposals for the Tower and Ashbourne site 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.

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 Thursday 15 November from 2-7pm.

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.

Cllr Mohammed Nazir, cabinet member for housing, said: “Many Slough residents have called Tower and Ashbourne home over the years but the buildings have now come to the end of their useful lives and we’re looking to redevelop the site.

“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.”
