Thank you for taking time to visit this website of our proposals for the redevelopment of the Kennet Centre. Lochailort is a specialist regeneration developer that has acquired this site in order to work with the community and the local authority to revitalise the heart of Newbury.

This website endeavours to explain how, through redevelopment, the site will benefit both the immediate and wider area.

The planning applications (reference 21/00379/FULMAJ and 21/00380/FULMAJ) were submitted to West Berkshire Council in March 2021 and revisions were submitted in August 2021.

Following further comments from statutory and local consultees and discussions with West Berkshire Council officers, further amendments have been made and have been submitted to the Council for determination.

The revisions have involved a full review of the scheme and how it relates to the historic fabric of Newbury. Professor Robert Adam PhD, RIBA, Hon RIAS, RSA was instructed to work alongside the scheme architects, Collado Collins, to review and re-elevate the architecture of the scheme to ensure that it respects and enhances the historic character of Newbury.

The resulting scheme now comprises 367 units, new retail, food and leisure, and offices uses, and new streets, landscaping and public spaces in this highly sustainable location.

Using this website, you can view the documents that make up the planning applications 

We are very grateful to those who have taken part in the consultation which has helped to inform the planning applications and we will post news about its progression on this website.
