Plans have been put forward to create an outdoor amphitheatre in the town centre as part of the Chapel Arches redevelopment project.
The amphitheatre would neighbour Maidenhead library and aims to attract more people to the area by offering seating and organised events to possible performance space and street entertainment.
The proposed site is next to Maudsley Gardens, close to Copthall House in St Ives Road.
The plans form part of Shanly Homes' £100m Chapel Arches project, which will be carried out in three stages and is expected to be completed by 2018.
The scheme will see the Colonnade, La Roche gym and part of the Hines Meadow car park demolished to make way for new shops, restaurants and apartments centred around an improved York Stream.
The Royal Borough is due to make a decision on the amphitheatre by Friday, June 20.
