Maidenhead Town Center Parking Lot Closes on Halloween
THE D-Day parking lot at Maidenhead Town Center will be closed on Halloween day as the major regeneration program begins.
The temporary parking lot on Queen Street will be closed to motorists on Sunday, October 31.
The Landing HUB promoters requested the release of this space to start the next stage of the major renovation of the city center.
Cllr David Cannon, Cabinet Member for Public Protection and Parking, said: âWe have been using it in the meantime to provide some additional living spaces for the downtown area.

âWith the mechanical shovels now in place, the developer HUB has requested the release of the site, announcing the start of construction on this essential project and a major investment for the borough.
âMotorists are still encouraged to use the other existing car parks in Maidenhead, including Grove Road and West Street, which together have enough space available for additional vehicles. ”
The Landing project foresees the construction of 429 apartments by 2024, with 123 apartments to be built in the first phase by 2023.

The 3.5-acre development site will also include a new office building, parking, retail and new public space.
It’s been a rough start for the developers since the plans were given the green light in 2019, where HUB obtained the remaining land from the landowners following a public inquiry to move the project forward.
Major redevelopment now appears to be on track with backhoes seen on site to begin construction of the apartments.
