Plans to build a children's hospice in the town are set to go before Royal Borough councillors tonight.
An application submitted to the council by the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service is due for discussion by Maidenhead development control panel.
But a final decision on the proposals looks unlikely to come just yet as it is recommended the panel delegate the task back to council planners.
The proposals hit a stumbling block earlier this month when Cox Green Parish Council recommended them for refusal.
A report accompanying the plans recommends that the authority to make the decision should be delegated back to the council's planning department.
The hospice charity was set up four years ago by Windsor couple John and Fiona Devine in memory of their son Alexander who died from a brain tumour.
Other applications due to be discussed at the meeting at the town hall include plans to extend The Complete Angler Hotel in Bisham Road, Marlow.
