Plans for 312 homes at the end of the Slough branch of the Grand Union Canal go before councillors on Wednesday (February 10) with a recommendation for approval.

Two joint ventures, Slough Urban Renewal (SUR) and Waterside Places, are behind the £68 million scheme called Stoke Wharf.

SUR involves Slough Borough Council and Morgan Sindall while Waterside Places is a partnership between Muse Developments and the Canal & River Trust.

The scheme will involve improvements to Bower Recreation Ground, new public realm and enhanced open spaces around the end of the canal and facilities including a café, moorings, electric vehicle charging, bus stop and cycle hire docking station.

The development, which will comprise 10 new buildings, involves redevelopment of a former Travis Perkins site.
