DOZENS of homes could go up next door to Binfield’s Coppid Beech Hotel.

Plans for 54 new houses come as part of a larger scheme to build 422 homes by London Road which were submitted two years ago and are still undecided.

Most of the homes would be three-bedroom with 29 of these living spaces planned.

Bracknell News:

Seven four-bedroom homes, six two-bedroom homes, six-bedroom apartments and one five-bedroom house make up the rest of the dwellings.

A quarter of the homes will be made affordable, meaning fourteen of them will be sold at a below-market price.

Vehicle access would come off London Road with access being connected to the development to the south.

The site, which is allocated for residential development, is currently an empty agricultural field and is located by Coppid Beech Hotel, south of London Road.

Bracknell News:

Original plans for the development indicated designers wanted to build 65 homes, but discussions with Bracknell Forest planning chiefs led to architects reducing the number of dwellings.

A statement from developers’ planning documents read: “Careful consideration has been given to the advice given at the last pre-application meeting to evolve the proposed scheme.

“The revised scheme will deliver much needed new homes, helping meet local housing need, in accordance with its allocation and the character of the context.”
