Sustainable living for Maidenhead
Transport, travel and highways advice from Motion will be provided to housebuilder CALA Homes as it puts together outline planning proposals to develop Maidenhead Golf Club.
A joint venture development partnership has been established between CALA Homes and the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead to bring forward the development opportunity on the 130-acre site. The land has been identified as a future residential growth area for the town and should deliver approximately 2,000 new homes.
Motion Technical Director, Chris Saunders, says, “This is an exciting opportunity to work with CALA Homes to provide the town with much-needed housing and help create a new sustainable community.”
The proposed development will be within easy reach of Maidenhead railway station and, when open, the Crossrail’s Elizabeth line, which will provide commuters with a rapid route into central London.
Additional amenities will service the new development, which is southwest of Maidenhead town centre. New facilities will include primary and secondary schools, a community hub, public open spaces and supporting infrastructure. Thirty per cent of future housing on the site will be affordable homes.
