Sheppard Robson has won planning for 1,300 homes on an old Horlicks factory site in Slough.

Berkeley Homes will demolish part of the site to build five apartment blocks, while retaining the factory’s chimney and clock tower.

It will include 25% affordable homes as well as shops, restaurants and a nursery.

The factory, owned by GlaxoSmithKline, closed in 2018 after 110 years.

Consent to move a grade II-listed war memorial at the site is being sought separately to form part of a new public square on site.

Anna Shapiro, associate partner at Sheppard Robson, said: “The scheme brings together a wide range of new homes in a way that supports the creation of an integrated neighbourhood, with a strong historical link to the Horlicks Factory grounds.”
