HUNDREDS of new homes could be built in Bracknell on the doorstep of a currently development.

Emma Runnessen, of Persimmen Homes, has submitted a hybrid application to Bracknell Forest Council.

The application consists of two proposals, one being an outline application with all matters reserved for commercial development for land south of Amen Corner, Bracknell.

The second proposal is for the construction of 422 residential units, access road, car park and public open space.

If approved, the homes would consist of 258 houses, along with 164 flats and maisonettes.

The homes will be divided into 76 two-bed houses, 178 three-bed houses, and four four-bed houses.

The 164 flats and maisonettes will all be two-bed.

Nina McKerlie, of Braeside, Binfield, objected to the proposals.

She wrote: "The infrastructure of John Nike Way and the lack of adoption of said road, will not

withstand this increase in the number of dwellings."

Stephen Porter, of South View Cottage, Bracknell, also objected, writing: "We object on the grounds that we were promised by the council that they would not allow southview to be sandwiched between developments.

"The council assured us that we would to be included in the first we would not suffer the major disruption that would be caused over the timescale of construction.

"This application and the application for a school that fronts Southview is proposing to leave Southview in the middle of major development."

Should the council approve the plans, the homes will be developed in a patch of land behind the Coppid Beech hotel and John Nike Leisure Centre.

This is just across the road from the Amen Corner development, which, when completed, will hold more than 500 homes.

The proposals will go before the planning committee at a later date, but the details can be viewed by accessing the Bracknell Forest planning portal under reference 18/00242.
