A church centre regeneration worth £500,000 has been given the green light after project managers settled a tax wrangle with the Government.
St Peter's Church in St Peter's Road, Maidenhead, had fears its ambitious plans were in danger of collapse after being warned it might have to pay £40,000 in VAT.
However, this week officials said they are unlikely to have to pay and builders are now set to start work on June 18.
Project manager Sue Stabler said: "Having worked on this for three years with so many ups and downs it is a wonderful feeling to know we can finally go ahead."
From June 10 while work is underway, the Sunday 10.30am mass will be held at Furze Platt School, in Furze Platt Road.
