The land use to the north of the High Street will include additional retail space and an enterprise hub along the High Street itself, with the remainder of the High Street frontage including a new village green on the corner with Winfield Road. A new nursery and car parking for business users (employees who work on the High Street and immediate surroundings) will also be included. The remainder of the land will come forward as residential development and open space.

Moving to the southern side of the High Street, and Ascot East (Car Park 5a), this will be transformed. A new building cornering the High Street and Station will provide space for new smaller sized shops (perfect for independent traders) and restaurants with apartments above. The building would be up to four storeys in height and provide retail space which can be divided up into smaller units.
The new village square will connect directly to the High Street and link the street to the trees and open space to the south. The square would be hard surfaced, with seating areas for adjacent café / restaurant uses and could host market stalls and events throughout the year.
The community building is along the eastern edge of the village square. The building could include retail, a flexible function room, café, parish facilities and potentially other uses.

The design has been set to respect the existing trees and provides residential properties within open space and landscaping. The area seeks to improve pedestrian links and establish a potential pedestrian and cycle connection through to the Shorts land being released separately to the south.
There is the potential to provide a mix of house types, including apartments and houses set around large informal and public green spaces across the remainder of the site.
