Queensmere Slough Gets Approval

3 12 2015

Plans to revamp Queensmere shopping centre in Slough have been approved by Slough Borough Council.

The Stilwell Partnership has had a major involvement in the scheme to gain planning approval for the expansion of shopping centre with 675 flats in Slough Town Centre.

The access to the site is on the busy A4 running through Slough town centre.  The existing Queensmere car park was also run down and in need of modernising.  The proposed development would add additional trips both onto the highway network, pedestrian and public transport facilities.  Modelling was undertaken along Wellington Street and options were put forward to increase the capacity of the junction into the car park.

A new car park for the Queensmere shopping centre was also put forward and a revision of the layout was required to accommodate some resident parking, taxi drop-off areas, Car Club and electric vehicle spaces.  A new Cycle Hub was also installed to encourage cycling by residents, shoppers and staff.

As part of this project, in addition to the revised junction arrangement and car park design, a Transport Assessment, Travel Plan, Service Management Plan and Car Park Management Plan were produced.

  • A Transport Statement is a simplified Transport Assessment used to cover the small scale development where the traffic impact is limited
  • A Travel Plan is an integrated package of measures designed to encourage uptake of more sustainable modes of transport among employees, visitors and suppliers of an organisation or location.
  • A Service Management Plan gives a framework to make sure that freight vehicle activity to and from the building is working effectively. This will help organisations to manage deliveries reducing the number of trips, identify where safe and legal loading can take place.
  • A Car Park Management Plan investigates problems with current parking planning, describes specific parking management strategies and how they can be implemented and describes how to develop optimal parking management in a particular situation
