Latest planning round up for Slough, Windsor & Maidenhead – April 10

DEVELOPERS withdraw plans to demolish GP surgery for new homes – this is just one of the many plans submitted or determined by Slough Borough Council or the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.

To view more details for each application, go to the respective council’s planning portal with the reference number attached.

Construction of nine homes with landscaping and associated works, following demolition of the existing buildings at Green Meadow Surgery and Knightswood, Winkfield Road, Ascot (21/00341/FULL).

Developers want to demolish the existing doctor’s surgery and detached house, outbuildings, and car park and erect five-bed detached houses fronting Winkfield Road, three-bed terrace houses fronting the Avenue, and two pairs of four-bed semi-detached houses fronting Ronald Court.

During pre-application talks, the applicant reduced the number of homes from 11 to nine and added sufficient parking and amenity space in the scheme.

However, the developers decided to withdraw the plans on April 1 after several residents objected.

Objectors wanted the plans to be refused on the grounds some of the homes will block natural sunlight into their houses, the loss of privacy, and the site being overdeveloped, creating a ‘cramped’ development.

Ward councillor David Hilton, who is on the planning committee, agreed with the objectors and requested the application to be called into the committee if officers approved the plans.

Construction of nine apartments and new boundary treatment with associated parking and amenity space at land adjacent to 33A, the Crescent, Maidenhead (20/03261/FULL).

The Royal Borough officers refused plans for developers to build nine flats on the edge of Maidenhead town centre.

The building comprises four two-beds and five one-bed units with three dedicated parking spaces and amenity space.

Parking policy states an application of this magnitude would need ten spaces, but the applicants say the Crescent will provide on-street parking to fill this gap.

Objecting to the scheme, the Maidenhead Civic Society said: “This application constitutes cramped overdevelopment with inadequate parking and amenity space for residents.

There is an oversupply of new flatted developments in Maidenhead and our future housing stock requires family homes rather than more flats.”
