The details of homes that will replace long vacant offices on the outskirts of Bracknell are due to be decided.

In April 2018, housebuilders Taylor Wimpey won permission to demolish the long vacant Beaufort Park office building and replace it with 68 homes.

The £18 million modern office building has not been occupied since it was completed in 2009, prompting landowner interest to develop it into a new residential community.

Taylor Wimpey obtained permission to demolish the vacant offices on appeal to the Government’s planning inspectorate.

Now, the details of what the 68 home development will look like are due to be decided at a Bracknell Forest Council planning committee meeting on Thursday, November 11.

Plans show that the new homes will be made up of an apartment building, and a mix of terraced, semi-detached and detached houses.

Of the 68 homes, only seven would be affordable, with the remaining 61 being sold at market value. Of the affordable homes, two would be shared ownership houses and five would be apartments.
