Former Slough Council offices to become new apartments
A former council office in central Slough will be transformed into 89 new apartments.
Planning permission has now been granted for Landmark Place on Main Street in Slough, to be converted into houses.
The Windsor Road site previously hosted MyCouncil – a face-to-face customer service center.
The plans have received “pre-approval”, which requires board confirmation whether specific parts of a development are acceptable before work begins.

The new apartments consist of:
- Studio – 30
- One bed – 27
- Two beds (three people) – 25
- Two beds (four people) – seven
According to the applicant, the apartments offered have been designed to meet and exceed the space standards described nationally.
MyCouncil has been closed since March 2020 as part of Slough Borough Council’s ‘ongoing transformation agenda’.
To replace the old customer service center, the board decided to open local access points at Langley, Cippenham and Britwell libraries for people to access.
In the plans, the developers intend to keep the 171 parking spaces already present on the site and to add 248 bicycle parking spaces to the site.
Road officials raised no objections to the project, renting out future homes in a “ well-placed area ” as occupants can access a wide range of public transport and have “ sufficient parking ”.
