NEW details have been revealed about proposed plans to redevelop part of Slough’s High Street into almost 100 flats.

Developers Manhattan Assets No9 Ltd have submitted another planning application to Slough Borough Council revealing more information about their bid to transform a two-storey building at 277-279 High Street.

As it is outline planning permission, only matters with scale, layout, and access are to be considered at this time and the plans could later change if approved.

No. 277 High Street comprises a restaurant, Haveli’s, at ground and first floor, and a small residential unit. No. 279 High Street comprises a carpet shop on the ground-floor and offices on the first floor.

The developers want to knock that down and build three buildings to create 99 flats and two ground-floor commercial units.

One block will be seven-storeys high and hold up to 41 flats with retail on the ground floor whereas the other building will be up to 13-storeys in height, comprising up to 60 apartments.

Another building, which will be a single-storey, could be constructed to the rear of 271-275 High Street to link the main two blocks and comprise cycle stores and a communal area.

Layout of the proposed buildings

Layout of the proposed buildings

The flats will be a mix of one and two-beds, none of which will be affordable housing as it would not be “financially viable”.

Surface level parking is provided for 39 car parking spaces, including seven disabled bays, and 100 cycle spaces are also proposed.

Previous outline plans were approved by Slough Borough Council to demolish buildings on 277-279 High Street for 57 flats in January 2020.
