Peascod Street homes finally approved
AMBITIOUS plans to build five houses and eight apartments in Windsor town centre have been approved by the council.
The Royal London Property Fund (RLPF), which owns empty offices at the Grade II listed building at 32 Peascod Street, wants to demolish the 20th century extension at the back of the property to build the homes whilst keeping the original Victorian frontage.
The proposal was passed at a meeting of the Windsor Urban Development Control Panel on Wednesday at Windsor Guildhall, after it was confirmed by the developer that nearby public walkway Peascod Passage will be kept open during construction.
Speaking at the meeting, Councillor Cynthia Endacott said: "It will enhance the area considerably and I'm happy that Peascod Passage will remain open during the construction."
The plan was initially knocked back due to concerns over parking provision at the site, but the developers confirmed that the proposal would provide adequate parking in accordance with council standards.
