Dozens of new homes across three sites in Bracknell are among the proposals for new housing developments in Bracknell Forest in this week’s roundup of planning applications and decisions.

You can view each one by going to Bracknell Forest Council’s planning website and searching for the application number provided.

40 new homes in Binfield (23/00488/FUL)

Plans for 40 new homes have been submitted to Bracknell Forest Council by developers Bloor Homes.

The development would be built at the junction of Forest Road and Wood Lane in Binfield, and feature 39 two-storey houses plus one bungalow. Bloor says 14 of the new homes would be designated as affordable.

Each house would also have electric vehicle charging points, and there would be a total of 93 parking spaces.

Bloor initially submitted a plan for 45 homes in October last year – but revised this to 40 after discussions with council planning officers.

Homes on Merryhill Road (23/00501/FUL)

An area of land encircled by Merryhill Road, Horsneile Lane, Shepherds Lane and Hart Close in Bracknell could be the site of 11 new homes under proposals submitted by Silva Homes.

The land is currently taken up by garages – but social landlord Silva Homes says a number of these are empty, and that it has offered the users of others to relocate to new ones elsewhere. Silva Homes also says the land has suffered from regular fly tipping.

The new homes would have two cycle and two parking spaces each – and they would overlook community spaces.

Shepherds Lane (23/00500/FUL)

Silva Homes also wants to build eight new homes at nearby Shepherds Lane. As with those proposed at Merryhill Road, the homes would be built on land currently used for garages.

Under the plans, there would be one block of five house, facing another block of three, each with their own gardens.

Balconies for planned affordable homes in Warfield (23/00507/NMA)

Planning officers have signed off on proposals to add balconies to flats in Warfield that have already been approved.

The flats are part of a 39-home development north of Harvest Ride and east of West End Lane in Warfield – which is “phase 10” of the huge 750 home Warfield development.

Bracknell Forest Council granted Berkley Homes permission to build the flats in October last year, on the condition that at least 25 percent would be managed by a registered affordable housing provider.

Berkely Homes then applied for permission to amend the plans to include balconies, as their chosen provider asked that they provide “amenity space” for residents. Planning officers approved the changes on Monday, August 7.
