A council conservation officer told borough councillors restoration of a home in Park Street in Windsor virtually destroyed by fire could start by the end of the week.
She was speaking to members of the Royal Borough's Windsor urban development control panel at the Guildhall last night.
Fire ripped through the Grade II listed Georgian property in 9 Park Street on Tuesday, May 7 in the biggest fire since the Windsor Castle blaze in November 1992.
The assistant conservation officer said the house was destroyed to ground level, while its neighbour has no roof and would need a 'comprehensive refurbishment'.
She added the Royal Borough was committed to getting things moving and having the front restored to its former glory.
Panel members asked for planning officers to treat the refurbishment as 'high priority' and get it restored as soon as possible.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
Further details have been revealed over how many trains will be running in Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead during planned rail strikes later this month.
