Office use change to 28 apartments at Tectonic Place, Holyport Road, Maidenhead (21/01581 / CLASSO).

The building was used before May 29, 2013 as offices and is currently used as offices.
All apartments will have access to natural light due to the layout of the apartments and the large amount of existing windows that benefit the building.
The proposals will have no significant impact on the road network due to the current use of the offices and the maintenance of the existing parking areas on the site.
Change of use of the old pub to serve food and drink as well as take out service at Pied Horse, High Street, Slough (P / 08145/008).
The owners are keen to renovate, repair and extensively convert this former pub to provide ‘traditional’ food and drink to visitors and to include a take-out service.
They say there are a number of pubs in central Slough and are keen to attract new customers with this change as the demand for pubs has changed in this area, the applicant said.
The planning statement read: “Over 20 years ago, the then Public House was subjected to severe flooding, which filled the basement, which was part of the demise of the Public House. This took the Public House completely out of service.

“Apparently the flooding was not corrected for a very considerable time (it took 20 full tankers to clean up), after which the occupants abandoned the Public House, never to return.
“At one point, all of the internal parts and supporting equipment of the public house were removed by others, without any rectification or other work done.
“Nothing more was done by the building owners of the day as the Use has, over time, been discontinued.”
Slough Borough Council planning officers have yet to vote on this request.
Change from a residential apartment to a staff rest / storage room for dental surgery on the top floor, apartment 50 High Street, Sunninghill, Ascot (21/01528 / FULL).
The owner of the Sunninghill dental practice wants to transform the two-bedroom apartment on the first floor so that the dental office on the ground floor serves as storage and rest room for the staff.
The kitchen would remain for staff use during their breaks and they would store dental supplies and paperwork in the mezzanine on the second floor.

The apartment is 72 m2, which, depending on the application, does not provide enough space, and the practice needs this space to expand.
The planning officers of the royal district have yet to decide on this request.
