Beechcroft Developments has drawn up a revised retirement scheme on the site of the former Thames Hospice in Windsor following the refusal of a previous proposal in August.

The new application scales the project down from 45 units to 41 in response to the Royal Borough’s development management panel’s decision which pointed to the height and scale of the initial proposal as the main reason for refusal.

Under the new scheme, drawn up by Edgington, Spink + Hyne, the current building, a former manor house known as Pine Lodge, will be demolished and Beechcroft will build three two-storey terraced houses, two two-storey semi-detached properties and four apartment blocks, designed for people aged over 55. The hospice has already relocated to Bray.

Of the 41 two and three-bedroom homes, 12 will be shared ownership.

Savills acted as planning consultant and heritage assessor.
