A hotel extension is expected to be given the green light tonight, after developers modified plans which were rejected in February.
Galleon Taverns has applied to build an extra 11 bedrooms at the Thames Riviera Hotel in Bath Road, Maidenhead.
Its application to build 12 guest rooms was rejected in February due to the bulk and scale of the extension and a lack of parking.
A report due to be heard at the Royal Borough's Maidenhead planning panel tonight recommended approving the new application.
It says the proposed building has been reduced by 2.5 metres in depth. The report adds that this 'gently reduces the overall bulk and scale of the extension.'
The report says that providing 11 rooms instead of 12 also cuts the strain on parking.
The new plans include adding 10 extra parking spaces, bringing the total to 49.
A plan to convert Marlow Road's Church of Christ Science and The Cloisters into a five-storey office building is also due to be discussed tonight.
It had been recommended for approval by officers.
