Proposals for 34 new homes to be built in Lower Cookham Road have been submitted.
The mix of three, four and five-bedroom two-storey houses would replace an office building in Whitebrook Park.
The applicant, and owner of the building, the Royal London Mutual Insurance Society, stated in its application the site has been vacant since October 2008 despite efforts to fill it.
The planning application submitted to the Royal Borough includes the demolition of the offices.
The applicant also states the redevelopment would include works to ‘enhance the surrounding area to include open space and improvements to the local footpath network and connections to Thames Path’.
A decision on the plans is expected to be made by Friday, November 4.
The reference number for the plans is REF16/02557.
