“Overall we think the proposal is a simple conversion, which would be simple to do in terms of construction. The new restaurant would work well in Peascod Street, giving vibrancy and diversity. The food sold will be of high quality, healthy options.”
An application has been made to the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. The board will make a decision on the scheme in the coming weeks.
