An outline planning application has been submitted for the redevelopment of the Shorts Yard in Ascot. This is for 131 houses with the access being from St. George’s Lane. While we support the redevelopment of this site – and will be pleased to see all their HGVs removed from our area – we are seriously concerned about several aspects of this application:
The number of dwellings proposed is too many, in relation the access constraints of the site; there is insufficient parking allowed for; and there is a question mark over the viability of the proposed pedestrian and cycle accesses onto the High Street.
