Joined by colleagues from the Council’s regeneration, planning, economic development, and transport teams, the delegation went on a short tour to familiarise themselves with the estate followed by a meeting to discuss the ongoing transformation of the estate and its role in helping improve the town and meet the challenges it faces.

Gareth Osborn, Business Unit Director, Thames Valley, SEGRO, said:

“The Trading Estate has been at the heart of the community and the local economy for almost a Century becoming home for a diverse mix of businesses, from world-leading multi-nationals to thriving local SMEs.

“We share the Borough Council’s vision and aspirations for the town and want to play our part in providing a competitive advantage for its businesses. We look forward to working together to ensure that the Trading Estate continues to evolve to meet the changing needs of our customers and drives Slough’s social and economic prosperity into the future.”

As part of its long-term commitment to Slough, SEGRO is undertaking an ongoing, multi-million pound investment programme. Improvements already delivered include the £10m Leigh Road Bridge, which opened in 2015 to enable traffic to flow more freely around the Estate; improved amenities such as the recently-opened Costa Coffee and Premier Inn; the creation of new recreational and ecological green spaces, such as Leigh Road Park; and general improvements to facilities and the environment such as the transfer of overhead power cables underground and the installation of high speed fibre broadband to improve digital connectivity for the Estate’s businesses.

Josie Wragg, Chief Executive, Slough Borough Council, said:

“Slough is as a great place to live and work, and it has been recognised independently as one of the best locations in the UK for productivity, exports and successful business start-ups. It was fantastic to visit the Trading Estate and hear more about its history and successes.

“With Crossrail’s arrival on the horizon, the Council’s ongoing programme of regeneration and companies like SEGRO who continue to invest in the town’s commercial and social infrastructure we have a bright future ahead as a place of opportunity and ambition for everyone.”
