Occupiers Confirmed for Wokingham

Wokingham Borough Council in partnership with Wilson Bowden Developments are pleased to announce that a number of businesses have committed to the new-look Wokingham Town Centre regeneration scheme.

Cllr Philip Mirfin, executive member for regeneration, said:

"We've spent a lot of time listening to people's comments about the type of businesses they would like to see in the town centre and looking at the mix of shops in similar towns to see what makes them a success.

"I'm very pleased to confirm some of the first names of businesses taking units at Peach Place. GAIL's artisan bakers will be opening on Peach Street and Cook, the high-end frozen food retailer, opening on Rose Street. We're also in the process of finalising dates to handover keys with lots of other businesses so will be releasing more names very soon."

These businesses will join the list of operators already secured for the town at Elms Field. Retailers already announced include boutique cinema Everyman Cinemas, an Aldi foodstore and a Premier Inn.

Cllr Mirfin added:

"We've worked closely with our lettings agents to make sure our vision for the town - lots of local independents and boutiques mingling with excellent national names - becomes a reality.

Borough residents are set to benefit twice from the regeneration schemes with the developments delivering, not only a fantastic town centre with far improved facilities, but also generating a brand new income year on year for the council which will be used to fund essential services for all residents.
