Great to see in the recent Thames Tap that the plans to redevelop the Queensmere shopping centre in Slough are moving forward.
Proposals include new homes, retail, leisure, offices and a new town square, as well as outside community spaces – which is great news for the town.
However, this is not the only regeneration underway here in. Over recent years, Slough has benefitted from the delivery of some impressive new facilities. Since Slough Urban Renewal (who have delivered Novus Apartments) was first established in 2013, we have seen some large scale changes across the borough. In addition to extending and improving a number of the local schools, SUR has delivered much needed new housing and some impressive new leisure facilities, which local residents here are already able to enjoy.
From The Curve, SUR’s inaugural development, an award-wining new library and cultural centre to the multi-million pound refurbishment of The Centre, Slough’s flagship leisure centre, these new developments have vastly improved Slough’s offering to the local community.
Other projects have included a newly refurbished ice arena, improvements at Salt Hill Park, the updating of Langley Leisure Centre and the delivery of Arbour Park – a state of the art new sports and community facility. And not forgetting , the recent transformation of the former library site – which not only includes Novus Apartments, but the UK’s first Moxy and Residence Inn double-decker hotel, forming a new hub of residential, leisure and retail space, right in the heart of the town.
