Slough Urban Renewal (SUR) has secured planning permission to build 212 homes on the site of the former Montem Leisure Centre.

The leisure provision was transferred to The Centre in Slough which was refurbished in 2019 so the Montem site could be redeveloped for housing.

Now Slough Borough Council, part of the joint venture with Morgan Sindall which makes up SUR, has approved the plans for a mix of apartments and houses.

Katy Walker, senior development manager at SUR, said: “This is a great scheme and will really help to rejuvenate the western edge of the town.

“With a newly refurbished leisure centre in place, this site provides an opportunity to deliver much needed housing for the borough and its residents.

“In addition to the homes that will be delivered here, we will be incorporating communal spaces that will be open to the wider community and we will be improving the public realm, for the benefit of all.”

The site forms part of the proposed Chalvey regeneration area. SUR scheme includes communal outside spaces and rejuvenating a woodland area and a neglected brook.
