  • Sharma delighted by Elvian School site appeal decision | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    Number 33 Bus Route Survey Save the Bath Road Reservoir Campaign Southcote rat infestation The Reading Futures Fair Underwood Road Precinct Development Visitor Parking Permits Letters Gallery Contact Links Sharma delighted by Elvian School site appeal decision 2nd December 2013 Alok Sharma the Member of Parliament for Reading West has expressed his delight that the Planning Inspectorate has rejected Taylor Wimpey s appeal to build 193 new homes on the former Elvian School site Alok who has backed the West Reading Education Network s plans to build a school on the site has supported community attempts to block the housing developer s proposals in favour of a new secondary school Earlier in the year the West Reading Education Network WREN was granted permission by the Department for Education to open a new Free School in central west Reading and the Elvian School site is the group s preferred site for the school In rejecting Taylor Wimpey s appeal the Inspectorate noted that the Taylor Wimpey scheme itself was of poor quality design that does not constitute sustainable development and would detract from the character and appearance of the locality The Inspectorate s appeal ruling also made clear that until there was greater clarity on the scale of secondary school provision required in the local area it would be inappropriate to allow residential development on the former Elvian School site that would prevent some form of secondary education provision there Alok Sharma said I am absolutely delighted to welcome this common sense decision and I congratulate WREN and everyone locally and nationally who has supported our efforts to see the former Elvian school site used for education Having now worked closely with the WREN team for many months I just want to reiterate how brilliant they all are and their enthusiasm

  • Sharma speaks at Elvian School Inquiry | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    s first choice of location for the school is on the site of the former Elvian School Speaking at the Inquiry Alok spoke about his support for the WREN school describing WREN s ambitions as a fantastic vision to provide a 21st Century education and that he believed they would be able to deliver that vision on the Elvian site Alok pointed out the benefits of setting up a free school with the support of the local community and highlighted the achievements of All Saints Junior School which was set up by many of the same people involved with WREN and has recently been assessed to be Outstanding after its first OFSTED inspection In giving evidence Alok pointed out that a combination of demographic changes and poor planning by Reading Borough Council has put severe pressure on primary school places locally and this will feed into a shortage in secondary school places Alok went on to point out that Reading Borough may not be able to continue to rely on West Berkshire schools to provide for all the additional secondary school places it needs for Reading Borough students given that West Berkshire Council faces it own significant bulge in primary school places which will work its way into secondary school numbers Almost 800 children from Reading Borough currently attend schools in West Berkshire which means Reading Borough will soon face a double whammy in additional pressure on secondary school places Alok also dispelled suggestions made by the Taylor Wimpey team that the site would not be available for the WREN school explaining to the Inquiry that Taylor Wimpey do not actually own the site which is in fact owned by the charity LVS Alok was also able to quote an email from the owners of the Elvian site which made clear they were happy to meet with WREN if the Taylor Wimpey appeal failed as well as correspondence from the Education Funding Agency which stated that it had not ruled out purchasing the Elvian site if it became available in the future During the evidence session Alok also explained that aside from the need for the site to be used as a school the application was unsuitable because Both the Bath Road and Southcote Lane already experience a high level of traffic and local residents are concerned about the huge additional impact the proposed development will have on these roads The traffic impact of this development will be further exacerbated by the cumulative impact of other recent developments in the close vicinity of this site and the current development on the Bath Road Reservoir site 193 new dwellings will undoubtedly place excessive pressures on local schools and on other local services such as the local GP surgery The site was deemed suitable by Reading Borough Council for 70 to 100 dwellings and the proposed 193 dwellings are far in excess of that number Alok Sharma said I hope that when the Planning Inspector makes a decision on this appeal he
