A historic house in the centre of Windsor may still be at risk.

Royal Borough planning councillors threw out an application by Berkeley Homes to flatten Essex Lodge and put a block of 14 apartments on the site when they met in September - the second time they had blocked plans to demolish the Edwardian house on the corner of Osborne Road and Bolton Avenue.

Supporters of the building see it as playing a key role in the traditional feel of the area.

But now Berkeley Homes have lodged an appeal against the council's decision, which means a government inspector will have the final say after a hearing which is set to take place on January 21.
