Developer Ryger Maidenhead is behind the scheme at Maidenhead’s central Broadway Triangle site.

In 2015, the developer secured planning permission from the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead for the development, known as the Landing, which would include 225 homes and 61,000 square metres of office and other floorspace.

But a scoping report filed by Ryger’s planning consultant, Peter Brett Associates, says it now intends to submit a revised application.

The report said the new scheme would have nearly double the number of homes – 550 – with office, retail and other uses cut to 21,000 square metres.

According to the scoping report, the development would contain buildings of between six and 19 storeys, replacing mainly two and three storey building currently on the site.

The 1.33 hectare development site has been identified by Windsor and Maidenhead Council as one of six key sites for specific development within the Maidenhead Town Centre Action Plan designed to regenerate the town centre with more shops and homes.

The report can be found on the council’s planning website under reference 17/03431/EIASCO
