Will new go-kart centre in Maidenhead get green light?

A decision on whether a go-karting and laser combat centre should be built on the site of an empty two-storey warehouse in Maidenhead's Stafferton Way is to be decided next week.

Absolutely Leisure, a charitable subsidiary of Slough Community Leisure, is seeking planning permission to  develop the empty site which could see up to 14 cars on the track at anyone time and a combat area which would be large enough to accommodate 16 people.

Residents living near Stafferton Way have raised objections. They say that the increased noise and traffic would have a negative impact on the surrounding area.

In a letter to the Maidenhead council Malcolm Geary said: "Leisure activities presuppose numerous spectators, competitions with national and international bodies offering similar fun and games, both of which are incompatible with the original intent of the developers of a light industrial and commercial complex."

Anyone objecting the plans has been given the chance to speak at a development control meeting on Wednesday.

It is a public meeting and starts at 7pm at Maidenhead Town Hall in St Ives Road.
