The future of two pub sites in Windsor will be discussed by planning councillors on Wednesday.
Applications to demolish the Mitre pub in Oxford Road and the Fawn in St Leonard's Road will both be considered by the Royal Borough's Urban Development Control Panel, when members meet at the Guildhall at 7pm.
A plan by Windsor UKIP councillor Tom Bursnall to demolish the Fawn pub in St Leonard's Road, putting a two bed maisonette and three three-bed houses in its place is being recommended for approval by planning officers, although councillors will have the final say at the meeting.
A plan to flatten the Mitre pub in Oxford Road - put forward by the Mitre Development Project Ltd - is being recommended for refusal by officers. They feel the planned replacement pair of four bedroom semi-detached houses would be out of keeping with the rest of the street.
At the same meeting councillors will be recommended to allow the demolition of the Datchet Mead Hotel in Slough Road, Datchet. The owners want to put a block of 12 two bed flats in its place which would be smaller than the existing mock Tudor hotel.
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.
