Designs for dozens of new homes planned for the site of the former Haymill Centre have been revealed.

The proposals would see 33 new homes built at the site of the former community buildings in Burnham.

These new homes would range from two to four bedrooms, and would comprise of 70 per cent market houses and 30 per cent affordable homes.

The vast majority would stand at two stories high, while a few would reach two and a half stories for some larger family homes.

The applicant’s planning statement reads: “The site is residual land that is surplus to the requirements of Slough Borough Council and has remained largely vacant for a period of nearly 10 years, other than the use of the remnant car park in the south west corner by Slough Borough Council’s Community Transport Team.”

Access to key public transport links are also highlighted, with the site falling around 175m north of Burnham train station.

A total of 20 homes in the development would have three bedrooms, with nine set to be two bedroom and the remaining four would be four bedroom.

The statement adds: “The proposed development is focused around a central open space which seeks to encourage community cohesion and provides opportunities for new planting and trees.

“Around the open space are a number of quiet streets and mews, which reflects the arrangement of streets seen in the local area.”

New access to the site is also proposed via Littlebrook Avenue, with a total of 71 parking spaces set to be included.

In addition, each home will have dedicated electric vehicle charging points.

The statement adds: “It is envisaged that the development will utilise a predominantly brick construction with interest added using features such as wall hung slate tiles, dormers and textured brick. Roofs are proposed to be in a cement type, dark grey slate throughout the development.

“A small partially covered porch will also be provided for each house type to give respite from the elements to residents before entering the house.

“These porches will also be used to incorporate the meters and electric vehicle charging points where appropriate.”
