Changes to the number and type of homes being built at Boulters Meadow have been proposed.
Two applications for the former Badnells Pit site are due before Maidenhead development control panel on Wednesday.
The first asks permission for 14 houses to be built on the site instead of a block of 10 one and two-bedroom flats and two three-bedroom houses originally planned. These would incorporate land from an existing house at 106 Blackamoor Lane.
The second asks for approved plans for 22 flats on the site to be replaced with plans for 10 three-bedroom houses split into two terraces.
An objection to this was initially made by the Environment Agency on flood risk grounds but it has since indicated this can be resolved.
A formal update is expected at the meeting, which will take place at 7pm at Maidenhead Town Hall.
Both applications are recommended for approval subject to conditions including section 106 developer contributions being secured.
