A number of applications to build homes in Bracknell Forest and Wokingham Borough have been submitted this week.

Two of the plans have already drawn the ire of their respective planning departments.

A plan for 40 homes in Binfield was initially refused by Bracknell Forest Council’s planning department, but was granted on appeal. Now the developers have submitted further details for the scheme.

Details have been submitted for an unpopular development that was granted on appeal in Binfield.

The 40 home development in Tilehurst Lane, Binfield was rejected by Bracknell Forest Council planning department in January 2019.

This was after the plan received more than 50 objections from neighbours.

A report outlining the refusal read: “The proposed development would cause unacceptable harm to the open, parkland character of the site which provides a rural setting to Binfield and would have an adverse impact upon the rural character of Tilehurst Lane.”

However, the plan was accepted on appeal. Now the developers have submitted the details of their plan. Of the 40 homes set for the site, 10 will be affordable.

Designs show where each of the homes will be, with access to the development being provided by one turning into Tilehurst Lane. It is located immediately south west of Binfield Park.

Of the 19 homes, four would be affordable.

Three of these would be through affordable rent, consisting of one two-bedroom home, one three-bedroom home, and one four-bedroom home. One three-bedroom home would be affordable through shared ownership.
