New three bedroom house to “attach” to an existing house in Bracknell (21/00792 / FUL)
The owner of 37 Stoney Road in Bracknell has requested the construction of a three-bedroom house which will be connected to his existing house.
The new houses would be attached to the current house on the ground floor, with a clear passage below at ground level to provide access to the two houses.
The new house would in effect be an additional terraced house to the existing terrace of four houses at Stoney Road.
37 Stoney Road, the first image in the gallery above. is currently a two bedroom house with a combined kitchen and dining room and living room.
The additional house would have three levels, with two bedrooms on the first floor and one en-suite bedroom on the second level.
Two houses to replace the current house in Bracknell (21/00808 / FUL)
This is a request to demolish a cottage and replace it with two new homes at Priory Lane in the urban part of Warfield north of Bracknell.
One of the houses would have four bedrooms and the other three.
In the four bedroom house, two of the bedrooms would be on the first floor and two would be in the attic, and in the smaller house, all three bedrooms would be on the first floor.
The larger house would have two parking spaces, the smaller one would have a space on the driveway and a car space in a garage.
A Google Map image of the existing three-bedroom house, Number 8A Derryquin Cottage, appears to show it in vacant condition, with no cars parked outside and an overgrown driveway.
The developers have obtained permission to demolish it and replace it with two dwellings in May 2020 (19/00594 / FUL), but these new plans replace those that have been approved.
New swimming pool and gym for the Wargave house (Wokingham app 213050)
The owners of the Hatchgate End house in the hamlet of Cockpole Green in Wargrave have requested the construction of an indoor swimming pool and gym in an outhouse on their home grounds.
The outbuilding would contain a swimming pool, sauna, small gym, shower and toilet for occupants to wash after exercise.
It would also come with two skylights.
The owners also want to make a small extension to their garage.
Replacement Big House Tennis Court in Wargrave (Wokingham App 213060)
Fox Steep owners in the hamlet of Holly Cross in Wargrave have requested a replacement tennis court be built after their original tennis court was removed due to their need to remove Badger Setts from the old court of tennis.
An aerial photo from Google Maps shows the tennis court removed from the grounds of the house.
Now they want to build a new tennis court right in front of the outdoor pool that can be seen in the aerial photo.
Planning documents submitted with the application indicate that the badgers were safely moved.
Since Fox Steep is Grade II listed, the owners were required to provide a heritage statement as part of their application, in order to demonstrate the impact the plan may have on the character of the home.
Danks Badnell Architects Ltd said the new tennis court would have no impact on heritage assets.
