A SLOUGH school has been given the go-ahead to install a module building to hold another classroom.
This is just one of the many applications submitted to the local authorities in Slough, Windsor, and Maidenhead in the past seven days.
To view more details for each application, go to the respective council’s planning portal with the reference number attached.
Dental surgery is set to expand its practice at 96a Straight Road, Old Windsor, Windsor (21/03596/FULL).
Egham Dental Care was given planning permission to change the upstairs flat into a new surgery as it wants to expand its capacity.
The applicant says there is no room to build a new extension to the property. The ‘logical choice’ is to convert that apartment, which is owned by the dental surgery, into the practice.

An additional air-conditioning condenser will be installed to serve the new dental surgery. This will be placed to the rear of the building, close to the two units serving the existing surgeries on the ground floor.
While the new surgery on the upper floor will not be as accessible to people with disabilities, the two surgeries on the ground floor are more accessible and are retained.
Baylis Court School was given the go-ahead to install a modular building at Gloucester Avenue, Slough (P/06960/024).
The school will be placing an extra classroom near its playing fields next to other modular buildings.
It said it will purchase the building and assemble it at the site. Once constructed, it will help ‘enhance the teaching and learning experience at the school’.
The building will be 10 x18 meters in size which is similar to other existing modular building on the school site.
The building will only require an electrical supply for lighting, heating and plug sockets. There are no sinks or toilets in the building so no need for water supply or drainage.
Planning officers reject plans for a 5G mast to be built on the junction of Keppel Street and Sheet Street, Windsor (22/01594/TLDTT).
Part of Three Network’s national rollout of its 5G telecommunications in Windsor was stopped by planning officers over concerns.
This was to help boost the area’s internet connection where the pole would have come with equipment cabinets.
But the proposed monopole’s height and bulk would be ‘prominent’ in the area and impact the street scene as well as the Grade II listed York Terrace.

Residents were concerned it would have been set within the conservation area. One local wrote: “In recent years there has been an erosion of the visual amenity of this part of the conservation area due to over large and inappropriate speculative office development and the installation of security barriers.
“A telecoms mast and ancillary equipment will only add to this erosion and should be rejected.”
