Slough Urban Renewal has begun work on its second major residential development, the Wexham Green scheme aims to deliver 104 new homes.
Slough Urban Renewal is starting its second residential development – Wexham Green. This will redevelop the site of the former Wexham Lane Nursery on Wexham Road into a residential community of 104 family homes, built by Lovell.
SUR say Wexham Green will incorporate extensive landscaping to enhance its position next to the green belt and the Grade II listed ‘Wexham Lodge’.
Initial clearance and ground works are now beginning on site, with construction commencing in September to build a range of two, three and four bedroom detached and semi-detached new houses, to be released in spring 2017.
The homes will be available for private homes and affordable rent.
The start of Wexham Green follows within a year of the launch of ‘Milestone’, Slough Urban Renewal’s first residential development. Almost 50% of the homes at Milestone are now sold, following the launch of the show home last month.
Councillor Zaffar Ajaib, commissioner for neighbourhoods and renewal at Slough Borough Council, said: “The council is committed to providing new and affordable homes for local people, despite the challenging lack of space to build in the borough. We have built 264 new homes in the past year alone with 1,000 more are currently under construction, including the new homes at Milestone and at Castleview in Upton.”
Alastair Gourlay, a board member at Slough Urban Renewal said: “Slough has huge potential and it is our aim, through this exciting partnership, to deliver a host of projects that will enhance what the town already has to offer and to deliver much needed, high quality new housing for those living and working here. ”
