Future of the former Shire Horse Centre site set to be discussed

The future of the former Shire Horse Centre site in Littlewick Green is among eight items set to be discussed at a Maidenhead planning meeting on Wednesday.

Royal Borough councillors on Maidenhead development control panel are due to meet at Maidenhead Town Hall in St Ives Road at 7pm to discuss an application for the derelict site in Bath Road which was submitted by Hicks Developers in July.

The application was granted outline planning permission last year and detailed plans for the centre to be demolished and replaced with six luxury homes now follow.

The site was most recently used as a base by educational charity Heroes Berkshire, and before that as children's farm and craft centre Village Life, but has remained empty since the end of last year.

Also due for discussion by the development control panel is an amendment application for plans to build three detached homes in College Road.

Charlesgate Homes Ltd is behind the plans for the four-bedroom properties which, if given the green light, would replace the house formerly known as Threeways.

A decision will also be made over whether a bungalow named Linden Lodge in The Farthingdales will be demolished and replaced with two four-bedroom houses.

Other applications due for discussion include:

* Plans for a single-storey side and rear extension plus alterations to the front porch and relocation of existing garage at 21 St Marks Crescent.

* Plans for a first floor, single side-storey and two-storey rear extension at 69 Treesmill Drive, Cox Green.

* Plans for a single-storey rear extension at 7 Meadow Way in Fifield.
