Bracknell town centre regeneration

Winchester House, Bracknell being demolishedFENWICK COMMITS TO ICONIC BRACKNELL STORE AS TOWN CENTRE REGENERATION MOVES FORWARD

Following the demolition of the Northern area of the Town Centre last year our work has focussed on highways enabling and utilities works which are a necessary prerequisite of redevelopment.  This work has largely been completed apart from some remaining works to Service Yard G and outside of Peacocks. These will complete in the near future. Enabling works will resume in the New Year with further highway improvements on Bond Way.

BRP announced that they had secured a major pre-let to Fenwick for a new department store. This exciting new store on Millennium Way will comprise some 80,000 sq. ft. over three floors and the retailer will relocate from their current store once the new Northern area development has been completed in 2017.

We are planning that the main construction phase will commence mid 2015 but an exact timescale will not be known till the New Year when the main contractor’s programme is confirmed.

We have advised our retailers in Charles Square units that they will not be required to leave until spring 2015.

Further details of the comprehensive development proposals for the Town Centre can be viewed at www.bracknell.com

BRP is working hard to promote the town centre and keep people supporting the town. We have organised the Christmas light switch on in Princess Square and Charles Square this Sunday 30th November followed by the usual amazing firework spectacular.

Full details, are available on line at www.bracknell.com or pick up a comprehensive Christmas leaflet in any store in town detailing all the wonderful things on offer to make your shopping experience more fun – such as the Elf Academy and Land Train.

We are also delighted to confirm that Bentalls will be staging another Christmas Shopping Gala Day on Thursday 4th December 2014, offering savings of up to 20% on many lines.  Free Parking will be available in Princess Square all day to help to promote shopping visits into Bracknell Town Centre.
