Newbury’s vibrant town centre is a key focus of West Berkshire Council’s Local Plan, which aims to retain the town’s market heritage whilst improving local
infrastructure and renewing commercial uses and housing. As part of this strategy, the Market Street area has been identified as a future ‘urban village’: a mixed use, but predominantly residential area, with greatly improved pedestrian links between the railway station and the town centre. The site is located between the railway station and Market Street and includes the existing bus station and council car park. It can accommodate at least 200 homes, along with small units for appropriate commercial and retail uses and improved car parking for users of
Newbury railway station. Station improvement works are also planned.
Grainger plc, one of the UK’s leading residential property companies and the UK’s largest listed residential landlord, has been selected to develop the site and has appointed architects and masterplanners John Thompson & Partners (JTP) to work with the local community to create a Vision for the ‘urban village’ and its relationship with the town centre.
