The site of a former nursery in Lincoln Road is to be marketed to developers for community use.
Last night cabinet members discussed how the land in Pinkneys Green was to be used following a refusal to grant permission to build a Hindu temple on the site on September 25 last year.
Councillors said they thought it important that the site, which was a private children’s nursery and has been closed since 2009, is leased to a developer for the benefit of the community.
Congregating at the Windsor Guildhall, the cabinet also agreed to support a national campaign to reform the licensing laws to allow businesses more flexibility and improve the night-time economy.
Cllr David Hilton (Con, Ascot and Cheapside) said: “Currently the licensing laws block the interests of club owners, club goers and local residents.
“We want new clear criteria to be transparent and uncomplicated.”
Part of the new licensing objective also pledges to protect public health by reducing crime and noise disturbances.
