The Maidenhead Development Control Panel voted on 15th March to grant planning permission for a new Care Village within the grounds of the Grade II Listed Park and Garden at Hall Place, near Maidenhead. The estate is currently used by Berkshire College of Agriculture (BCA) as their campus and lies within the Green Belt. It also contains several listed buildings and structures, including the Grade I Listed Hall Place manor house. The Care Village comprises a 50 bed care home, a well-being centre, 26 assisted living units and 82 independent living units. The scheme also provides for a wide-ranging landscape improvement program, which will enhance and restore the historical landscape elements within the Park, in addition to enabling the built heritage assets to be preserved and enhanced through a series of restoration projects facilitated by the Care Village development. CSA Environmental were part of the consultation and design team, advising on landscape, visual and arboricultural matters, as well as developing the concept landscape plans and parkland restoration concepts.
