  • Sharma launches health petition to expand GP services in Battle Ward | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    the benefit of health services in the local area In December Alok wrote to Dave Peasley Director and Council Manager at Reading Borough Council to seek assurances about how Section 106 money due to be paid by property developers David Wilson Homes in January will be spent However in the Council s response Mr Peasley said when the financial contribution is made to the Council it must be used for Community related benefits which you will appreciate could be applied to a wide range of essential community related infrastructure Given the competing demands on such funding and the current restraints in public sector finance it is only right that the Council properly consider its use in the wider community context Natasha O Brien Chair of West Village Residents Association said This is disgusting news and a huge disappointment Public consultation told the Council they wanted better health care provision in Battle Ward I understand that building another health centre is overkill but this money should go towards Battle residents who have health care requirements and not disappear it into a hole of debt Chris Maude Practice Manager at Grovelands Medical Centre said There has been no consultation whatsoever by the PCT or Reading Council with GP practices regarding their intent to divert the S106 monies to community related benefits in lieu of the Battle Health Centre It appears from Mr Peasley s letter that the PCT did that deal with Reading Council and if so they did not consult us about it That would be a clear breach of the PCT s responsibility to consult with practices and their patients However the fact is that last year the PCT did consult with local practices about using the S106 monies to fund expansion of the practices in lieu of the Health Centre so clearly Mr Peasley s letter does not make sense in that context Alok Sharma said On the one hand we have had Labour councillors calling the cancellation of the new health centre a betrayal and on the other hand they are already back tracking and preparing the ground to use this money to fill other cracks in their budget Alok continued Residents were promised that this money would be used for the benefit of health services in the local area and so they will be extremely upset to learn that the Council has reversed this commitment at this late stage and that is why we are launching this petition The new petition reflects recognition by NHS Berkshire and local Commissioning Group leaders that local GP practices need help to expand their premises to enable them to provide more services The wording of the petition which can also be completed online at www aloksharma co uk health petition reads We the undersigned call upon Reading Borough Council to honour its previous commitment to spend without delay the approximately 1 5 million it is receiving in Section 106 monies from David Wilson Homes in respect of the West Village development

    Reading Borough Council LEA school supported by the Church of England s Oxford Diocese School parents and governors have identified a building August House located directly opposite the current school location on Brownlow Road as an ideal building to expand the school August House which is up for sale is owned by Reading Borough Council and has been on the market for several years The property was previously used as offices by various council departments but is currently vacant The school currently has accommodation for 60 children following full time education who are normally admitted in the September of the school year in which they have their 5th birthday At seven the children transfer to a junior or primary school Parents at the school are keen for the school to expand so their children can continue to be educated at All Saints through their primary school years upto year 6 School parent Marie Groucott speaking on behalf of other parents and the Friends of All Saints said All Saints is a lovely school with a very caring and safe environment and all our children really enjoy going there 15 of our school children have to move school this year and we know that many junior schools are over subscribed and there is huge pressure on school places across Reading Borough All Saints has no direct feed school and it would therefore be so nice if the children could have an opportunity to continue their junior school education at All Saints and parents could avoid all the uncertainty and stress of re locating school and worrying about getting their children into their school of choice Marie added There is huge support from parents governors staff and local residents to see August House turned into school premises and we are currently putting together a formal plan to make this happen which we want to discuss with the Council There is no question that we are short of school places in Reading and we hope the Council will take seriously our proposal to create another 60 school places rather than trying to sell August House in the middle of a property slump for short term gain If local parents and residents want to demonstrate their support for our plans please join the Friends of All Saints School Reading facebook page Alok Sharma the Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Reading West who is working with the school s parents and governors said I fully support this excellent initiative from the parents and governors at All Saints They are all extremely motivated to expand the school and I very much hope that Reading Borough Council will listen to their proposals with an open mind The pressure on school places in Reading Borough is not going to go away and creating another 60 places at All Saints will undoubtedly help The Council needs to demonstrate some imagination and long term thinking when they review the plan from All Saints The success of any school is determined by
