Plans submitted for a rear extension to build new apartments at 254 High Street, Langley, Slough (P/00372/021).
A developer wishes to extend his current property to provide two studios, two one-bed apartments and two two-bedroom apartments with amenities.

A tattoo studio wants to become a pizza takeaway at 108 Cookham Road, Maidenhead (22/01749/FULL).
Studio 108 could be converted into a hot take-out, which offers to serve pizza to hungry customers.
The promoters propose to open the pizzeria for 12 hours, seven days a week. Four full-time people could be employed if approved.
The shop will be a take-out pizza shop and will have a gas pizza oven located on the right side of the ground floor. This request concerns the change of use/external flue pipe. The oven will have a top extraction system with integrated filtration.
The redevelopment of the former Heatherwood Hospital has received final approval at London Road, Ascot (21/02792/REM).
The council’s planning officer has given final approval to developer Taylor Wimpey to redevelop the former hospital into 230 homes.
Councilors on Windsor and Ascot’s development management committee approved the plans in March, but were subject to conditions such as completion and securing a contribution to the council’s carbon offset fund.

The housing mix consists of 14 one-bed, 69 two-bed and 40 three-bedroom apartments – which range from three to five floors – and three two-bed, 88 three-bed and 16 four-bedroom units.
The site has parking for 368 spaces, 45 of which will have charging stations for electric vehicles, 432 spaces for bicycles, and incorporates new landscaping, grassed plots and open public spaces.
It is ‘not viable’ to build affordable homes on the site – but a condition has been added for Taylor Wimpey to contribute £6.35m towards off-site affordable housing.
