Bracknell - the future of retail

Bracknell Forest Council will be speaking at our next Future Cities Forum to be held at RIBA on 25th January 2018.

Chief Executive, Tim Wheadon, will be describing the journey that Bracknell Town Centre is taking from 1940s new town to the shopping and eating destination that local people expect and can enjoy.

In September this year, The Lexicon - a new high quality shopping centre - was opened with retailers such as Waitrose and Fenwick taking space. Some art has been woven in subtly to make the centre attractive.

Now the plan is to encourage developers to come forward with fresh ideas on the next stages of development for the rest of the town centre in a series of stages which will involve more retail, homes and offices.
