Welcome to our consultation website, which identifies our proposals for the partial redevelopment of the Broad Street Mall in Reading.
It is envisaged that the proposed scheme will deliver a range of retail and leisure uses at ground floor level to improve the customer experience and create a welcoming environment to this area of the shopping centre, above which it is proposed to provide high-quality, mixed-tenure residential accommodation.
The site currently benefits from planning permissions for residential development of a very similar nature, alongside a hotel consent. It has not been possible to implement these developments and the detail within this website therefore identifies the reasons for this, alongside what we consider to be improvements associated with the proposed offer.
This website provides background to explain the current planning position, the need for change, our current scheme proposals and associated benefits. Click on any image to enlarge. We are keen for your feedback on this new development, so that we can reflect local aspirations within our plans where appropriate.
The intent is that this website will work as a living document, being updated as further information is produced and to identify our response to comments provided.
