Welcome to the Elizabeth Quarter website

Cala Homes has been selected as the development partner of the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead to bring forward development proposals on the land at Maidenhead Golf Course in accordance with the Council’s recently adopted Borough Local Plan.

We are excited to be working on such a significant development project in the Royal Borough and propose to name the site Elizabeth Quarter in honour of the late Queen Elizabeth.

This website will enable you to keep up to date with the project over the coming years.

The Borough Local Plan

The Royal Borough has an adopted Borough Local Plan which allocates the land at Maidenhead Golf Course for development and removes it from the green belt.

The Council has further set out guidance on how the site should be developed in a draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) which was the subject of public consultation in Summer 2022.

We are now commencing our own public consultation on how development at Elizabeth Quarter will be taken forward.

Elizabeth Quarter

The vision for Elizabeth Quarter is to deliver a vibrant new neighbourhood that will contribute positively to the vitality of Maidenhead.

The site is well located in proximity to the Elizabeth Line and Great Western Railway Mainline, the town centre and local services.

The development will provide much needed new homes, as well as the on-site infrastructure to support the needs of both existing and new residents and provide a substantial area of publicly accessible amenity open space for everyone to enjoy.

As a first step we have submitted an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Scoping Screening Request to the Royal Borough’s planning department, setting out the scope that we will cover in the EIA to be submitted with the planning application in 2023.

Prior to the submission of the planning application there will be consultation with the local community in Autumn/Winter 2022 and Spring 2023.

We will directly notify neighbours in the vicinity of the site by door-to-door distribution as well as publicise the consultation in the local press and via social media. Please look out for further details.
