Councillors have approved plans for 312 homes at Stoke Wharf.

The scheme at the end of the Grand Union Canal in Slough, went before Slough Borough Council’s planning committee on February 10.

The proposal by Stoke Wharf Developments, a joint venture between Slough Urban Renewal (SUR) and Waterside Places, includes a café/restaurant, facilities for boats, an improved public park, parking for 114 vehicles and secure cycle storage.

Katy Walker, senior development manager at SUR, said: “Our plans for Stoke Wharf will rejuvenate the canal, a much-neglected part of the town, providing new homes and creating a lively and healthy place. Once complete, the new public realm here can be used and enjoyed by the wider community.”
