  • Local residents urged to respond to West Berkshire's Development Consultation by 3 July deadline | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    s Development Consultation by 3 July deadline Alok Sharma the Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Reading West and Birch Copse Councillors Joe Mooney Tony Linden and Emma Webster who are responsible for the Pincents Hill area have distributed another leaflet to thousands of homes urging residents to take part in West Berkshire s public consultation on development as the deadline of 3rd July approaches The Government is calling for a massive housing expansion around Reading as part of promoting Reading as a Growth Diamond and wants a minimum of 10 500 homes built in West Berkshire between 2006 26 As part of the process of deciding where the 10 500 homes should go West Berkshire Council has launched a public consultation to ask local people where they want these houses built with Pincents Hill and Whitehart Meadows in Theale two of the sites under consideration Alok Sharma said I am completely opposed to any development on Pincents Hill and at Whitehart Meadows which if allowed to go ahead will change completely the character of the local areas We need to avoid urban sprawl and protect existing settlement boundaries Alok continued In order to help developers concrete over green spaces Government Ministers have downgraded the protection given to our green spaces and issued instructions to local planners at councils such as West Berkshire telling them to allow development on previously protected areas of outstanding natural beauty and strategic gaps like Pincents Hill and Whitehart Meadows However despite the pressure from central Government I would like to see West Berkshire Council continue with its existing policies which seek to retain current settlement patterns Alok concluded Local roads are already heavily congested and the thousands of extra cars resulting from any major development will stretch the road infrastructure to breaking point and well above

  • Local MEP lends support to Pincents Hill campaign | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Reading West and local campaigners Joan Lawrie and John Betteridge at the Pincents Hill site on Thursday 12 February to lend his support and learn more about the campaign to stop development at Pincents Hill After the visit James Elles said I give my wholehearted support to this campaign after listening to Alok Joan and John It is absolutely clear that the vast majority of local people just do not want this development as it will put massive pressure on exiting traffic and public services as well as ruining a lovely green space which is likely to have a big environmental impact James continued Forcing unsustainable developments onto local communities in the South East appears to be a sad feature of current Government policy and we really need to have some fresh thinking with new homes being built in a manner that protects the environment and provides the infrastructure to support local communities Local people need to have a say in where new homes should go instead of unsustainable development being imposed onto local communities Alok Sharma commented As our recent Pincents Hill Survey demonstrated the full results of which can be viewed at www readingwestconservatives com the vast majority of local people are completely opposed to this development and the campaign to save Pincents Hill is gathering momentum We understand that the developer Blue Living will most likely submit a planning application during March and local residents must be ready to come out in full force against Blue Living s plans Save Pincents Hill campaigner Joan Lawrie said We are delighted with all the support we are getting in our campaign to stop any development and many thanks to James Elles for meeting with us today Once an application is submitted we will hold a

  • Local residents overwhelmingly reject plans to develop Pincents Hill site - Survey results | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    wildlife and the potential loss of a valuable green space The key findings of the survey were as follows 87 of respondents felt that the Government s housing target of a minimum of 10 500 homes between 2006 2026 for West Berkshire was not reasonable nor acceptable to existing local residents A massive 85 of respondents want NO development at all on the Pincents Hill Site 96 of the respondents are concerned about the impact of traffic from any development 87 are concerned about the loss of a green space 86 are concerned about the pressure on local public services such as education 82 are worried about the impact of development on the environment and wildlife The results of the survey are being circulated to local residents Commenting on the results Alok Sharma said The message from the vast majority of local residents could not be clearer they do not want any development at all on the Pincents Hill site There would clearly be significant traffic issues if any development was allowed to go ahead and the pressure on local schools and doctors would be enormous These issues coupled with the obvious detrimental impact on the environment and the loss of a value green space make any development on this site a non starter Local councillors and I are in a regular dialogue with the planners and decision makers at West Berkshire Council and have made plain our opposition to any development on Pincents Hill Quite frankly local people are fed up with unsustainable development and unrealistic housing targets being dumped on us from central Government I expect Gordon Brown will not be happy until the whole of the South East has been concreted over Councillor Joe Mooney who led opposition to similar proposals in the past commented Some years

  • No to Pincents Hill Development | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    area would cause misery on already congested roads It was also argued that the development would put huge pressure on already squeezed local services and the resulting loss of green space would seriously impinge on the quality of life of local residents Achievements in the campaign In response to the proposed development Alok along with local Councillors took part in several public meetings and organised a survey in an attempt to gauge local opinion The survey had an overwhelming 896 responses many submitting detailed comments and concerns These included the likely negative impact on traffic flows the impact on local public services such as schools and doctors surgeries and the impact on the environment and wildlife and the potential loss of a valuable green space Presented with such a clear demonstration of public opinion West Berkshire Council took the decision to exclude Pincents Hill as a strategic site from its local development plan at a meeting held in January 2010 Blue Living s application was heard and rejected by West Berkshire Council s Eastern Area Planning Committee during a public planning meeting in February 2010 Blue Living launched an appeal against the Council s decision Alok spoke out against the development at a Public Inquiry and in June 2011 Blue Living s appeal was rejected by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and by the Planning Inspector Alok says This is absolutely the right decision and a clear victory for localism I want to pay tribute to all the local residents especially the Chairman of SCAG Joan Lawrie who have worked so hard and with such great determination to fight off Blue Living s unwelcome development plans Quite simply this was the wrong development in the wrong place and I hope this puts an end to any
