Mini-town Proposals Hit Major Opposition

The proposed development of 15,000 new homes in Mid-Berkshire hit another buffer today.

Landowners Woodley Developments Ltd have appealed to overturn a decision by Wokingham Borough Council to refuse planning permission, but Loddon Valley Action Group (LVAG) "has vowed" to continue the fight against the 500-home plans for Sandford Farm.

It has been a game of cat and mouse as the scale and intensity of proposals continues to grow. Recently news has included moves to increase the number of homes on the Arborfield Garrison site from 3,500 to 5,000, while Shinfield could soon see 1,000 extra houses added to the area where 2,500 were planned.
