Boulters Meadow amendments are 'market requirements'
The new Boulters Meadow development

The latest application for planning permission on the site formerly known as Badnells Pit is the fourth amendment to the original plans that were approved in 2009.

It concerns plans to add three additional apartments to a block in the new Boulters Meadow development in Blackamoor Lane, Maidenhead.

Nathan Craker, development manager for Shanly Homes Limited, said: "For a site this size, which will take four to five years to complete, it is important to continually reassess the requirements of the market and make improvements and changes where it is considered beneficial to our customers.”

He explained a market shift towards the need for more family housing was the main driver for two other applications in September 2012.

Permission was granted to replace plans for 22 flats with 10 three-bedroom houses as well as replacing 10 one and two-bedroom flats and two three-bedroom houses with 14 houses.

Last month, the construction of a sheltered housing scheme was also abandoned in place of 21 homes, as Shanly could not attract an operator to take the building because of its out-of-town location.
