Chef Peking application to go before councillors next week
Chef Peking in Ray Mead Road

The latest in a long line of applications to convert the Chef Peking restaurant into housing is set to go before a Maidenhead development control panel next week.

Councillors will discuss plans from Shanly Homes to demolish the former restaurant in Ray Mead Road and turn it into eight two-bed apartments with parking and landscaping.

The application follows a series of rejected proposals for the site from the developer, with the most recent application to build nine flats refused by councillors at a meeting in February.

At that meeting it was revealed Shanly was in advanced discussions with Sainsbury's about the land, prompting fears the supermarket giant could move in if further applications were rejected.

The latest proposals have been recommended for approval by officers, subject to conditions and the submission of a satisfactory safe means of escape in event of a flood.

Other matters due to be discussed include:

  •  Amended outline proposals to build a four-storey office block at 3-6 Bridge Avenue following the demolition of four existing building have been recommended for approval, subject to conditions.
  •  Officers have given the go-ahead for limited-period planning permission to be granted for two single-storey temporary teaching facilities to be installed at the Berkshire College of Agriculture in Burchetts Green Road until October 2017 at the latest.
  •  Councillors will consider an application from Lucky Tyres, in Denmark Street, for a partial change of use to allow it to carry out MOTs and car servicing in addition to its exisiting use as a tyre shop.
  •  The proposed construction of two four-bed houses on land to the rear 4-6 Woodlands Park Road will also be reviewed.

The meeting will take place at Maidenhead Town Hall in St Ives Road on Wednesday.
