Each week, the Advertiser publishes public notices containing important information affecting the community you live in.
These statutory notices help keep the wider public informed about key issues, from plans to develop a block of flats in your neighbourhood to an application by your local bar or pub to serve alcohol for longer.
You can find out about traffic orders and road closures affecting your travel plans, and keep up to date with the latest changes proposed by your local council.
As part of the local newspaper industry’s commitment to highlighting the important role of public notices, we have launched a new feature in print and online which will make it easier to keep track of notices which affect you.
Each week, this column will highlight some of the significant public notices in our area, cutting through the jargon and giving plain English explanations of what is planned.
A Maidenhead hotel is seeking to build a new four-storey extension and plans to build seven new flats in the High Street have been revealed in this week’s public notices.
The Thames Hotel, in Ray Mead Road, is looking to build a four-storey extension on its north side.
In a planning application submitted to the council, it also hopes to construct a three-storey west and north extension which also includes a basement.
If permitted, the hotel would demolish the existing one and two-storey extensions already on site.
Meanwhile, plans to build more flats in Maidenhead High Street have been submitted to the planning authority.
