Demolition of existing building and erection replacement
clubhouse and offices. It was

           RESOLVED:         The Town Council Planning            Consultative
                             Committee make no representation.

              PLANNING APPLICATION 09/02028/FUL – 1 Benson Road,

              Erection of triple detached garage. Boundary fencing replaced
              with wall, driveway entrance widened and one driveway to be

                             following reasons:

                             Since the trees were removed this plot has
                             become significantly more prominent in the street
                             scene. Consequently the proposed garage, due to
                             its excessive height and width would be
                             incongrous within the street scene. Due to its
                             location on the plot it would disrupt the building
                             line on Maidenhead Road.

                             Furthermore, the proposal fails to preserve or
                             enhance the special qualities of the Conservation

                             If this application is heard before the District
                             Council Planning Committee the Town Council
                             would urge the Members of the Committee to visit
                             the site prior to making a decision.
