Next month’s meeting of the Maidenhead Town Forum will be the ‘perfect opportunity’ for Maidenhead residents to have their say on The Landing, a £230million regeneration scheme.

The meeting – to be held in the Council Chamber, Maidenhead Town Hall, St Ives Road, on Wednesday 8 October at 6.30pm – will start with the local developer, the London & Aberdeen Group, giving an overview of the proposed scheme, providing some feedback from its public consultation and detailing the next steps.

After the presentation the public will be able to give their views and ask questions.

Cllr Philip Love, principal member for Maidenhead regeneration and chairman of Maidenhead Town Forum, said: “We have timed this meeting to follow the public exhibition being held by the developer, London & Aberdeen, from Thursday 2 to Saturday 4 October.

“As well as being an added chance to find out about the scheme, it will also be the perfect opportunity for residents and businesses to have their say.

“It's also important that we begin to hear everybody's ideas about what could take place in the central public space.”

Doug Higgins, managing director at London & Aberdeen, said: “We’re thrilled to be bringing forward a scheme that aims to bring new life, activity and energy to Maidenhead town centre. With Crossrail arriving in 2019, Maidenhead needs an entrance to the town which it can be proud of. Our family has lived here for over 30 years and we know that The Landing needs to kick-start the rejuvenation of Maidenhead by raising the bar.

“The Landing is an opportunity to introduce new routes into the town centre, modern offices for blue-chip companies, elegant new homes, and a vibrant, authentic café culture to the heart of Maidenhead. After a history of disappointment for this site, we’re extremely keen to hear what the Maidenhead community thinks about our vision and draft plans. We’d encourage everyone to come to the exhibition and give their feedback.”

The site, bounded by Broadway, King Street and Queen Street, is to be a mix of retail, offices, restaurants and homes, with underground parking and a new town plaza.

The vision is that the scheme improves town centre accessibility and links with the Nicholsons Shopping Centre, High Street and the nearby railway station which will be one of the main stops for Crossrail from 2019.

The developer’s public exhibition will be held at 59 King Street (opposite Pizza Hut) from 2 to 8pm on Thursday 2 and Friday 3 October, and 10am to 4pm on Saturday 4 October.

London & Aberdeen is bringing forward the scheme on behalf of its long-term associate, Smedvig of Norway, and Ryger Maidenhead Ltd, in partnership with the Royal Borough.
