A planning application in Iver, a road closure in Slough and a renewal of the Gambling Act feature in this week’s public notices.
A planning application has been submitted to Buckinghamshire Council to convert a former pub in Iver into flats.
The Bull Inn, High Street, Iver, could be converted into 12 flats if the development is approved. The pub has been closed since June 2017.
17 car parking spaces are proposed as part of the development, while 15 cycle spaces would also be available.
Part of the existing structure would be demolished, whilst the applicant is existing to use similar materials in the conversion to match the current appearance of the former pub.
Several objections have already been submitted to the plans from nearby residents and councillors due to concerns over parking, air quality and the design of the building,

The Royal Borough will be publishing its Gambling Act 2005 statement of principles on New Year’s Day.
A statement is published every three years and will come into force at the end of January.
The Gambling Act has three main objectives: preventing gambling from being a source of crime or disorder; ensuring that gambling is conducted in a fair and open way; and protecting children and other vulnerable persons from being harmed by gambling.
RBWM is responsible for licensing premises where gambling takes place and for gaming machines on premises which are already licensed for alcohol.
