Plans to demolish seven office buildings and replace them with a mix of new industrial buildings with more than double the floorspace have been revealed in a screening request.

Savills, on behalf of Anglesea Capital, has applied to the Royal Borough to ask if an environmental impact assessment is needed for its proposal to demolish all seven, two-storey buildings at Maidenhead Office Park, totalling 27,697 sq m, and replace them with a mix of industrial buildings of up to 61,000 sq m.

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

The 13.5-hectare park, built in 1999 off Westacott Way, is on Green Belt land next to White Waltham airfield, about three and a half miles from Maidenhead town centre. It currently has 1,400 parking spaces.

The new development, designs for which are being drawn up, will have policy-compliant parking levels and buildings will be a maximum height of 17.5 metres.

A consultation has just been launched for the scheme. Visit
