The consortium of developers for the South Wokingham Strategic Development Location south of the
Reading-Waterloo railway line held two exhibitions of their plans for that area on Saturday 3 November and Thursday
8 November 2018. The development is intended to include 1600 dwellings, a primary school, a local centre and
natural green space. The consortium submitted three composite planning applications in May 2019 and the Society’s
Executive Committee submitted a response which can be seen here.
Not included in these plans is land around the Lucas Hospital to the west of the consortium’s area. This is subject to a separate planning application by the Pegasus Group on behalf of Charles Church, submitted in March 2020. Following two earlier exhibitions about this site the Society’s Executive Committee submitted a response which can be seen here. It will submit its views on the application itself in due course.
It has subsequently responded to the application in a response that can be seen here.
