Councillors unanimously agreed to grant planning permission to a new block of flats which will be built on the site of the Elva Lodge Hotel.
The application, presented at Maidenhead Development Control Panel last night proposed to knock down the Castle Hill hotel and replace it with 13 flats in a three-story building.
Agent David Howells, speaking on behalf of the applicant Kingsway Homes (Berkshire) Limited said the application would provide ‘much sought after housing, close in proximity to Maidenhead Town Centre’.
Cllr Philip Love (Con, Belmont) proposed a motion to approve planning permission would which was unanimously voted for by councillors.
Other items discussed included the refusal of an application to change the use of an existing detached playroom to a self-contained separate one bedroom house. Cllr Stretton proposed a motion to refuse the application, which was approved with six votes for and five against.
An application for three detached houses and two semi-detached houses in Oakland and Donne Mede was deferred by councillors.
A conversion of Vansett Nursing home on Norfolk Road into seven one bedroom flats and a one studio flat was approved by councillors.
