After a decade of waiting, planning permission has been granted for the redevelopment of part of a Berkshire town centre.
An artist's impression of how Peach Place will look
Shops, cafes, restaurants and more than 100 homes are planned for Peach Place in Wokingham.
The decision, which affects the area around the Rose Street car park, was agreed by Wokingham District Council.
But there has been some opposition to the scheme with concerns raised that it will affect the character of the town.
David Tinker, chairman of the Wokingham Society, said the area was becoming a "night town".
"There are lots of restaurants and cafes, heaven knows when that will stop," he said.
"What we are trying to do is keep Wokingham as a market town. We don't want to become a clone like many other towns around here."
Councillor David Lee, chairman of the planning committee, said concerns had led to a decision being deferred when the scheme went before planners in October.
