Permission granted for 15 new homes in Newton Lane
Councillor Malcolm Beer objected the plan

New homes will be built in Newton Lane in Old Windsor.

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead decided last night to give permission for the 15 new homes, despite vociferous opposition from some villagers.

The plan by Shanly Homes for the detached and semi-detached homes would increase the density of the area, replacing five detached homes currently on the site between numbers eight and 11.

Cllr Malcolm Beer (Independent, Old Windsor, pictured) had asked colleagues on Windsor's rural development control panel to debate the issue.

He warned that some residents felt that the scale of the plan and narrowness of the access roads made the plan unsuitable.

But councillors voted to allow the development to go ahead.
