Welcome to the Slough Central website; here you can find information about the proposals for the redevelopment of the Queensmere & Observatory Shopping Centres in Slough town centre.

We have now launched this second ‘Virtual Exhibition’, which provides an update on the proposals for Slough Central. We would like to hear your thoughts and ideas to inform the next stages of the masterplan and future planning application submissions. You can share your feedback via the ‘Virtual Exhibition’ or get in touch with the team via the contact details below.

The Slough Central masterplan will be delivered in a staged approach, with the Queensmere section coming first. The Queensmere Shopping Centre is therefore the focus of the first planning application for the site.

What is Slough Central?

Slough Central is the name given to the proposed redevelopment of the Queensmere & Observatory shopping centre sites, located in Slough town centre.

We first shared the plans for Slough Central in Spring 2020. Over the past year, we have been working to ensure that the proposals respond to the needs and aspirations of the town centre.

The plans for Slough Central are being developed as a masterplan, which will guide the future redevelopment of the site. Our masterplan approach is detailed in ‘Background and Context’.

As a result of ongoing discussions with Slough Borough Council and the local community, the masterplan for Slough Central has evolved, with a refreshed focus on delivering new homes and facilities for the town centre – this represents a change from the workspace-led approach detailed in the Spring 2020 consultation.

The Queensmere & Observatory Shopping Centre site is owned by a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA). The Slough Central project is being led by British Land as Development and Asset Manager.
