The rejuvenation of Ascot High Street provides an exciting opportunity to deliver the aspirations of local people, as presented in the work of the Prince’s Foundation.
The vision is to enhance the High Street and turn Ascot into a focus for the community with a vibrant daytime and night time economy by providing community facilities, a local village square and green space to the south side of a new two-sided High Street, which will have a range of small retail units suited to independents.
Key to these improvements and the efficient flow of traffic is ensuring that parking is improved, and that the new streets provide safe and accessible pedestrian and cycle routes, particularly east-west routes parallel to the High Street.
To enable this rejuvenation, a high quality development of new homes will be provided, reflecting good local examples of architecture that responds well to the green and leafy character of Ascot.
The above Vision was agreed with local residents; representatives of the Parish Council and Stakeholder Group; The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead; and the Prince’s Foundation, following a series of workshops and meetings.
