A new library with a sensory room could be built at Boyn Grove Resource Centre in Maidenhead if the panel gives plans the green light.
An application for a single-storey side extension at the Courthouse Road site, complete with externally accessed toilets and additional parking spaces, is also on the agenda.
The centre is used by residents with learning disabilities and elderly residents with dementia.
A council report due before the panel says: "The extension of services will increase public awareness of the site and its purpose, as it will become a site for community use as well as a specialist facility for adult service users.
"Residents will be able to use the library and café, attend activities and view museum displays within the lobby area of the library."
A new sensory garden would be created leading out from the sensory room.
The extension is set to be funded through Section 106 developer contributions.
The panel is recommended to grant permission subject to conditions.
