Latest Planning Roundup for Slough, Windsor & Maidenhead – May 15
Plans for 14 houses could be turned down due to green belt fears – just one of many planning requests submitted or determined by Slough City Council or the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.
To view more details about each application, go to the respective board planning portal with the reference number attached.
Construction of four family houses following the demolition of existing buildings at Silwood Park Nurseries, Cheapside Road, Ascot (20/02783 / LBC).
Royal Borough planning officers allowed developers to demolish existing structures at the old site to build four four-bedroom houses, all on one level.
The site is currently used to house greenhouses and storage sheds.
The promoters are also keen to create green spaces within the development and will set up a “green courtyard” in the center of the site as well as private gardens for future occupants.
The program offers a total of 12 parking spaces, including disabled parking and bicycle parking can be provided in the private rear gardens.

Landscaping, tree planting, and a waste and recycling storage facility will also be included.
House in multiple occupancy (HMO) to be converted into new apartments at 40 – 40A Kings Road, Windsor (21/00569 / FULL).
Royal Borough planning officers gave the applicant consent to convert an HMO into eight one-bedroom apartments.
The building has been an HMO for over 10 years and has 10 beds, three of which are self-contained.
Each apartment will have either built-in storage space and / or built-in or stand-alone storage space and / or additional flexible storage space.
The property does not have access to off-road parking, but occupants can apply for one parking permit each.
Secure and covered bicycle parking will be available at the rate of one space per apartment.
Construction of 14 houses following the demolition of an existing warehouse and other structures at Bellman Hanger, Shurlock Row, Reading (20/02462 / FULL).
Although the site is located in Reading, the area falls under the Hurley and Walthams Quarter in the Royal Borough.
The developers want to demolish the 1940s Bellman Hanger, which was used for storage in connection with the nearby White Waltham airfield, for 14 new homes.

The houses consist of a two-bed, four to three-bed, five to three-bed study and four four-bedroom houses.
No affordable housing was offered.
The development would use the existing access off Shurlock Row and include 41 on-site parking spaces, including six spaces for visitors.
As it would be built on the green belt, officers recommended to Royal Borough Development Management Panel advisers that it would impact its openness and developers ‘failed’ to demonstrate that they were compensating for this harm.
They also criticized the shed’s “poor” design, with the site providing no affordable housing, and the plans represent overdevelopment of the area.
Councilors will make their decision on Wednesday, May 19.
