Maidenhead named as 'it town' by national paper

Borough Local Plan: 'Not ready for population surge'

Maidenhead has made it on to a national newspaper's list of 21 fashionable 'it' towns in the UK for people to buy homes.

The Telegraph says that Maidenhead is within 'touching distance of the Chilterns' with an average house price of £502,628. 

The paper compiled the list to showcase its choice of 2021's in-demand towns. 

"The draw is countryside living and good schools," The Telegraph also adds as two other pull points for potential buyers in Maidenhead.  

Nearby Little Marlow was also named on another Telegraph list of the best towns to move to outside of London, for less than £1million.

The paper praises the parish's popular outdoor swimming spots and its good connections with both Maidenhead and London.

    This must have been a judgement based on what Maidenhead used to be like before being swamped by soulless blocks of flats and when we had a selection of decent stores, and the roads & streets were maintained and cleaned. As for fast trains GWR & Crossrail again someone has been looking at the promised pre-construction services, not what these has been reduced to & not justified by Covid as every other inefficiency is. That said who wants to go to London these days anyway. Businesses are shutting and/or reducing their square footage. So no Maidenhead is not what it was

      I like Maidenhead and I go into London a few times a week. I think it's perfect. Most (not all, I accept) of those who don't like the town could move somewhere they do like. Blowed if I'd live somewhere I didn't like and just sit there moaning about it all the time.
