Councillors have been recommended to approve plans to demolish an office park and replace it with an industrial scheme with twice the floorspace.

Anglesea Capital’s application to replace 27,692 sq m Maidenhead Office Park at Littlewick Green with a 55,741 sq m industrial scheme goes before the Royal Borough’s Maidenhead development panel on Wednesday, September 20.

The proposed use classes include E(g)(iii) (industrial processes), B2 (general industrial) and B8 (storage and distribution).

The plan to redevelop the seven-building office park attracted 335 objections along with a detailed representation from White Waltham Parish Council, which objected along with the parish councils of Hurley and Bisham. Objections were also made by Littlewick Green Society, Burchetts Green Village Association and Fiennes Park Residents Association.

Concerns of the Civil Aviation Authority’s Airfield Advisory Team UK, led to changes in the scheme including a reduction in scale from an initial 61,783 sq m due to the proximity to White Waltham Airfield.

The 13.5-hectare office park, built in 1999 off Westacott Way, is on Green Belt land next to the airfield
