Councillors have been recommended to approve plans for Maidenhead’s new Nicholson Quarter when they go to committee on Wednesday (March 3).

The Royal Borough’s development management panel will consider the £400 million regeneration of the centre of the town centre, drawn up by JTP, which has been put forward by Tikehau Capital and Areli Real Estate.

The application seeks permission to demolish the Nicholson’s Centre and other buildings for  a scheme of 653 flats (307 of them sheltered accommodation), around 29,000 sq m of offices and around 8,300 sq m of flexible retail.

There will be new public realm including a new Sir Nicholas Winton public square and a new multi-storey car park on the three-hectare site. Buildings will be up to 25 storeys.
