A 305-home development in Warfield, a clubhouse in Ascot and a garage in Woodley are in this week’s roundup of planning applications and decisions 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: Bedrooms in Warfield development (23/00776/NMA)

Housing developer Taylor Wimpey wants permission to change already approved plans for part of a huge 305-home housing development in Warfield.

Bracknell Forest Council approved the design and layout of 45 of the homes on the development between Maize Lane and Old Priory Lane in December last year.

But now Taylor Wimpey wants to change the plans to split some bedrooms in some of the houses so that it can also provide offices. The developer says this is because there is an increased demand for spaces where people can work from home.

Bracknell Forest: golf club makeover (23/00540/FUL)

Berkshire Golf Club in Ascot has got permission to give its clubhouse a makeover – with outside and inside renovations.

A planning statement says that designers want to rearrange the public areas of the clubhouse so that its “centre of gravity” is shifted away from the bar and towards a more accessible Honours Hall.

New doors and larger windows will also open up onto outside terraces.

Wokingham Borough: garage in Woodley (232533)

Rivers Cars in Woodley has been allowed to keep an extension to its workshop that it built without planning permission.

A Wokingham Borough Council planning officer visited the site on Woodley Avenue in September this year and ruled that planning permission was needed for the extension that had already been built.

The owner Ian Rivers submitted an application in October, and planning officers granted permission last Tuesday, November 28.

Wokingham Borough: industrial units in Arborfield (230732)

Permission has been granted to build two new units at the Bridge Farm industrial park on Reading Road.

Designers, Corporate Architecture, say the units will provide a good space for new start-up businesses.

They say: “The proposed units will offer practical spaces for companies to work, store and trade from. Each unit has separate entrance and service access features, this will provide a good basis for new businesses to start and develop.”
