Restaurant operators Zizzi and Nando's are to open new sites in Bracknell, as the regeneration of the town centre continues.
The two brands have signed up to the scheme through the Bracknell Regeneration Partnership (BRP), a 50:50 joint venture between Legal & General Property and Schroder Property.
Zizzi will be taking a 3,300 sq ft building on a 15 year lease, while Nando's is taking a 6,000 sq ft unit on a 20-year lease. Both restaurants will be situated in the new Northern Retail Area of the town centre, adjacent to the cinema.
The masterplan for the town centre was adopted in 2002. The scheme was granted outline planning permission in December 2006 and detailed planning consent for the Northern Retail Area was granted in July 2013 followed by detailed planning consent for Charles Square in September 2013. The town centre redevelopment will be achieved by a phased development but with a holistic approach to town planning.
