Cratus has recently worked with the Wates Group on two successful outline planning applications for 320 new homes at Land West of Windsor. This followed Cratus advising Wates on the site’s promotion in the long-running Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead Local Plan. The site was allocated following the adoption of the Plan by the Council in February 2022.
Following the adoption of the Plan, Wates Group brought forward planning applications for the Northern and Southern portions of the site. The Northern portion of the site was consented in November 2022 with the Southern portion consented by the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead’s Development Management Committee in March 2023. In addition to the new homes provided (40% of which will be affordable), the development will also provide a 150 pupil Special Educational Needs school and a range of community infrastructure.
As always, it has been a privilege to work with Wates Group and the wider project team on this outstanding project.
