A review of the management structure at the Royal Borough has resulted in its planning boss being made redundant.
Simon Hurrell was employed by the council in 2012 as head of planning and development after working for Somerset Council and Ealing Council.
But the 67-year-old was made redundant after his role and the role of regeneration and economic development director, held by Chris Hilton, merged into one.
A council spokeswoman said: "Following a review of the management structure of the planning and regeneration teams, which resulted in the deletion of one senior management post, the head of planning at the Royal Borough, Simon Hurrell, has been made redundant."
Father-of-two Mr Hurrell, originally from Dorest, was involved in projects such as the redevelopment plans for Maidenhead town centre and the Mill Place travellers' site, in Datchet.
He lives in west London with wife Louise.
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.
