Challenging Scheme Approved in North Ascot Green Belt
Bracknell Forest Council has just granted planning permission for the Rectory Homes scheme for the demolition of the former Winkfield Manor at North Ascot and its replacement with a large new building seeking to replicate the glamour of the original Manor but will actually provide four houses. Additionally, 14 additional dwellings have been allowed in a mews style development and lodge to the side which will honour the site’s history but turn the site around so that it faces the modern entrance drive from Forest Road. This was a challenging scheme involving Green Belt, local buildings of historic interest, drainage, ecology and access issues which the team has successfully managed, to produce a handsome and sustainable design. JPPC worked with the following to deliver the approval for Rectory; BHP Harwood Architects, Sylva Consultancy (trees), Glanville drainage and transport consultants, Windrush Ecology, Donald Insall Associates (Heritage), Thames Valley Archaeological Services and Richards Partnership (landscape).
