A planning application has been submitted for flats to the rear of the old post office in Maidenhead town centre.
Sorbon Estates, part of the Shanly Group, is looking to create four homes on the rear part of the site at 110-114, Maidenhead High Street.
The property developer has applied for a change of use from offices to residential.
If approved, the development will not include any parking for future residents due to the ‘sustainable location’ of the site.
A separate change of use application has also been submitted to the local authority to create one more flat on the site.
The post office site, covering 106-114 High Street, is the subject of a larger outline application from Sorbon Estates, with plans submitted in late December to build a 13-storey building comprising 108 apartments facing West Street.
Two commercial units fronting High Street and car parking over the basement, ground floor and first floor form part of this application, which is still awaiting a decision.
A spokeswoman for Sorbon Estates said if the scheme for 108 apartments is progressed, the application for five flats to the rear of the old post office site will not go ahead.
