Three companies bidding to build in Kennedy Park, Wentworth Avenue and Marunden Green will present to cabinet, who will choose their preferred developer, on Monday. The companies are Barratt, Countryside and Lovell.
After the decision has been made, the council will enter into a contract with the successful bidder.
John Rice, assistant director for environment and regeneration, said: "It was very difficult to separate three of the four bids we received as each adopted different approaches to improving Britwell for everyone.
"We will now be putting the three remaining proposals to the cabinet who will see presentations from the bidders before making their decision.
"I want to thank the neighbourhood board and all the residents of Britwell who took the time to come down to the regeneration shop, look at the bids and give views."
Members of the neighbourhood board, which has been advising the council since the project began last year, will be attending the meeting.
Presentations will be made at The Centre in Farnham Road, Slough, on Monday, from 6.30pm.
