Thames Tap has teamed up with the developer behind the proposed Eagle Quarter in Newbury to offer a chance to explore the scheme with the key players involved.

Hugo Haig, director of Lochailort, will be joined by Roy Collado, partner at Collado Collins Architects and Mark Williams, executive director of Rivington Hark, on a panel of speakers for a webinar chaired by UK Property Forums managing director, Matthew Battle.

Spotlight on the Eagle Quarter in Newbury – Retail Redefined is at 9am on May 27 and is free to attend. There are perks for UK Prop Social members.

Mr Battle said: “This is one of the first schemes in the county to be designed specifically to address the changing landscape of the high street and will breathe new life into a key town centre site, taking inspiration from the town’s heritage.

“The webinar will be a rare opportunity to find out more about one of the key regenerations in our region. Our panel involves the leading figures in this hugely significant scheme.”

The highly sustainable Eagle Quarter will bring around 30 new shops and restaurants, with a focus on independent, local and artisan businesses, along with around 400 new homes.

There will be new public spaces, wide pedestrian roads and improvements to the existing cinema and car park. The scheme will replace the Kennet Centre.

Two planning applications for the mixed-use development are now available to see on West Berkshire Council’s website. One version includes a sustainable office scheme while the other includes a retirement community.

The developer hopes to see the scheme go before planners on July 15.
