Our friends at the ‘Keep Emmer Green’ (KEG) campaign have asked us to tell our members about the planning application that went live a couple of days ago.
Below is the information from KEG:
“A planning application for 260 properties on Reading Golf Club land has been validated by Reading Borough Council today, and has gone live on Reading’s planning portal. There are a considerable number of documents, so it’s going to take KEG and our planning consultants some time to go through all the documentation.
We (KEG) have already queried the duration of the planning consultation period with the Council, as such a large application requires at least 13 weeks according to government guidance; the current consultation period has only been specified as 4 weeks.
We aim to get in touch with KEG members as soon as possible to suggest a number of points that opposition to the housing estate development should centre around. We would encourage everyone to read the documents, to make notes, but to wait until KEG have had time to fully appreciate the detail of the plans.
Caversham GLOBE encourages our members/readers to put in their comments via the planning application link above.
Planning application details can be found here on the Reading planning website.
If you are not a subscriber to ‘Keep Emmer Green’ (KEG), or you know those who would be interested, please subscribe so we can send you updates on the planning application.
