A plan to build a bungalow on surplus land in Crowthorne has been submitted, following a community consultation. 

The applicant proposes to construct the three-bedroom single-storey home on land to the rear of a property on Forest Road, which partially comprises of the garden of number 5. 

Some of the space is deemed surplus to requirements but there would remain a sizeable garden at Number 5, which is in excess of the council’s adopted requirements. 

The applicant was the original owner of Number 5 Forest Road but has since sold the property, the new owners have been made aware of the development proposals.

The new dwelling, situated on a rectangular shaped plot, would also include an open plan kitchen, dining and living room, as well as two bathrooms 

Immediately to the east and south of the site are residential properties in Forest Road and Napier Road, which led the applicant to conduct a pre-application community consultation on the proposals. 

The owner of a semi-detached bungalow at number 9 Napier Road, the property most affected by the proposal, was provided with a set of application drawings but no further comments were received.  

The applicant has also engaged with the owner of No. 7 Forest Road, who raised no objections.
