A little bit of history

“A big WELCOME and enjoy”

Historically, Sunningdale and Ascot areas consisted of dangerous heathland, with very few trees, frequented by highwayman and lawless individuals.

The villages relied on the local transportation routes for prosperity, one of these was the magnificent Roman Road, the remains of which run parallel to the current A30.

King George 111 set up the first Royal Stand at Ascot, which became known as ‘The Royal Enclosures’ and subsequently Ascot racecourse.

Agatha Christie lived in Sunningdale at ‘Styles’, named after her first mystery novel and it was from here that she mysteriously disappeared for eleven days. The famous Sunningdale golf course featured in one of her short stories called ’The Sunningdale Mystery’.


Why move to Sunningdale?

The Sunningdale/Ascot areas provide wonderful amenities for both village and rural living, which therefore caters for professional couples, families and retirement, all complemented by the excellent access we have to the national motorway network, London and Heathrow.

The area is renowned

for the famous Ascot racecourse and for some world class golf courses at Sunningdale and Wentworth.

Sunningdale/Ascot is only 27 miles from the centre of London and therefore caters well to the family market with a varied range of property both in size and price, so providing a whole

market environment, allowing you to move up the housing ladder within the same area. With its Michelin star restaurants and wonderful Spa’s, we believe the Sunningdale/ Ascot area provides a great place to start your family, grow your family and later retire to. A place providing a modern approach born from traditional values.

Ideal living

The restaurant/pub scene in Sunningdale/Ascot is popular, including Fego brasserie, Piccolino, The Belvedere Arms, The Fours Horseshoes, Eastern Oriental and many more, catering for different food types.

From Sunningdale, theatre and cinema can be accessed at The Ambassadors Cinema, Woking, New Victoria theatre, Woking and Theatre Royal, Windsor and with Central London only 27 miles away.

Sunningdale/Ascot has a good mix of shops, cafes and restaurants both independent and national chains. From essentials such as opticians, pharmacists (Lloyds/ Boots), post office, butcher and supermarkets (Sainsburys, Waitrose and M&S) to more

specialist shops for residents with a good selection of clothing and gift shops.

Planning & Building Control

Unsure which services you need?

If you are thinking of making changes to your property, you may need to apply for planning permission and / or Building Regulations approval. If you’re not sure which applications to make, please use the guidance below to help you to decide what you need to do.

Please note that many developments will require both.

What is planning?

Planning is the process of deciding whether a proposed development should go ahead or not. It uses national and local policies to consider the development in its context and may look at the impact of the work on neighbours and the wider community, existing architecture, the land, the layout, and existing or proposed infrastructure (such as drains, transport and schools).

You will probably need planning permission if your proposed development will do any of the following:

• create a new building, or change the use or appearance of an existing building

• affect the sunlight, privacy or outlook for neighbouring properties

• affect the nearby area with noise disturbance, smell or fumes

• work on or around listed buildings or any conservation areas

• affect traffic volumes, road safety or access

• change the density of development in an area

• use significantly different materials or finishes from nearby properties

• have an effect on existing trees

What is building control?

Building control applies national statutory regulations to ensure the structural quality of any building work, in areas such as safety, public health, accessibility, and the materials used. Most substantial building projects (such as an extension, knocking down walls or converting a garage or loft) will need Building Regulations approval.
