Kennedy Park?

Councillors Express Concerns

Slough Councillors express doubts over the Kennedy Park / Britwell area scheme.

Councillors Express Concerns

The Slough Express is reporting that fears have been voiced over the Rebels potential new ground at Kennedy Park.

The ground, which is reported to be likely to cost in the region of 100 million, forms the cornerstone of an ambitious project to renovate one of Slough's most deprived areas. Speaking to the Express, Councillor Sean Wright (Britwellian Independent : Britwell) said "The BILLD group would like to see Council officers actively seeking funding grants so that it and the community can be in control of any plans." It seems that Wright is unhappy with the fact that all the plans hinge on the involvement of Slough Town Chairman, Martyn Deaner.

The plans were announced at Slough Town Hall on Monday by Deaner and Slough Borough Council leader, Councillor Rob Anderson (Labour : Farnham). Mr Anderson said "We have been looking at a potential site for the football club back in the borough, and obviously this is not easy. As we know, Slough is not exactly awash with land." He went on to say "This is using the football club as a catalyst for the regeneration."

Deaner has publicly stated that the project is larger than he wanted to be involved with, but is excited by the developments.

Slough Estates' investment manager, David Arthur has cautiously given his backing to the scheme although he has made a point of describing the discussions as 'Very preliminary'.

Opposition leader, Councillor Richard Stokes (Liberal : Haymill) stated that he was in favour of the regeneration scheme.

There is an open cabinet meeting on Wednesday to discuss the scheme. We will keep you posted on any developments.
