Town Moor, Maidenhead, Berkshire (For Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead)
We were commissioned by the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead to develop a masterplan for the regeneration of Maidenhead Town Moor. The Town Moor is an important area of public open space of 6.2 hectares in east Maidenhead. We project managed phase 1 of the Moor’s regeneration & expect to project manage Phase 2 to develop new recreational facilities in 2011. The first phase has made this popular site even more appealing & accessible to visitors.
The work reflects the Royal Borough's ongoing commitment to providing quality open spaces. The site is a haven for wildlife & is part of the council's aim to promote biodiversity. The work follows an extensive consultation process with the local community. The first phase, with costs of £100,000 has been met by developer contributions & comprises:
• Footpath improvements adjacent to the York Stream & the Maidenhead Greenway.
• Planting of 150 trees, including oaks, London planes, flowering cherries & limes
• Establishment of wildflower meadows
• New seating areas & refurbishment of the footbridges.
A large number of the new trees are semi-mature, will have an immediate impact, & offer shade for summer picnics. Phase 2 plans include car park improvements, a multi-use games area, creation of a picnic area, & further footpath improvements.
