A caravan park off Nine Mile Ride, adverts for new homes in Winkfield, and a four-bedroom house in Shinfield feature in this week’s roundup of planning decisions and applications in Bracknell Forest and Wokingham Borough.

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

Bracknell Forest: Caravan park on Old Wokingham Road (23/00622/LDC)

The owner of Pinewood Caravan Park has applied for retrospective confirmation that land attached to the site can be used for recreation purposes.

A planning statement submitted to the council says the land, just by the roundabout connecting Old Wokingham Road with Nine Mile Ride, was landscaped by the owners’ father in the 1990s and 2000s.

It says he “really wanted a place for everyone to enjoy. Many residents later used this area for picnics and ball games.”

Bracknell Forest: Advert for new homes in Winkfield (23/00491/A)

Antler Homes has received permission to advertise a new housing development with a totem board on Chavey Down Road in Winkfield Row.

A notice on the board will read “Coming soon – an exceptional collection of three and four bedroom homes.” The board will be just under two and a halt metres high and a metre and a quarter wide.

Bracknell Forest: Oak Tree in Winkfield (23/00198/TR5)

An oak tree in Winkfield is to be felled and replaced with a new one. The tree, at Oak Tree Lodge on Woodside Road was protected by a Tree Preservation Order – meaning owners need permission before felling or pruning it.

Council officers approved the felling, apparently on the grounds that the tree had died, but said it should be replaced with another oak.

Wokingham Borough: Four bed house in Shinfield (232333)

Plans to build a four bedroom house on Croft Road in Shinfield have been submitted to Wokingham Borough Council.

The house would be built on land to the east of Croft House, and also include a car port with space for two cars, and cycle storage.

A planning statement submitted by MatPlan ltd argues that the proposed layout of the site would “not appear as cramped or over-developed.” And it says it would “fit with the ‘grain’ of existing development.

But several neighbours have submitted objections to the plans. One, Philip Edwards, wrote: “The area has already had significant development in recent years. This additional house is not required and will further detriment the local environment.”
