Langley datacentre planning update

Microsoft will be applying for planning permission for a datacentre in Langley, Slough.

Why datacentres are needed 

Datacentres provide the physical infrastructure for the technology we depend on at work and in our personal lives. Whenever you open an app on your phone, join a virtual classroom or meeting, snap and save photos, or play a game with your friends online, you are using a datacentre. Local businesses, government, hospitals, and schools rely on datacentres every day to deliver goods and services to you.

Planning timeline

The site received outline planning permission for a datacentre in 2020 and is being cleared prior to the potential development. Our contractor, Coleman’s, is delivering this work.

Our plans for the future of the site are in development, and we will update this website with all the available information in due course.

Staying connected

We will keep the community up to date using the United Kingdom Community page on the Microsoft in Your Community blog.
