Plans for 417 affordable homes at a site in Windsor have been published in a scoping request to the Royal Borough.

Savills, on behalf of developer housing developer Abri, has made the request to the council, over the need for an environmental impact assessment for the scheme which involves demolition of four eight-storey 1960s blocks of flats, totalling 192 units, and their replacement a  mix of homes and blocks of flats of up to eight stories.

The 3.59-hectare site in Sawyers Close, between the A308 Maidenhead Road and Thames Mead Road, is jointly owned by Abri and the Royal Borough.

The proposed scheme will include around 27 townhouses, along with apartment blocks, ranging in height from three to eight storeys. Around 340 parking spaces are anticipated.

Public consultation on the scheme took place last Summer.
