  • Sharma blasts Blue Living's plans for Pincents Hill at Public Inquiry
    Greens all opposed to Blue Living s plans He noted that Pincents Hill was a strategic gap separating Tilehurst from Calcot and Theale and allowing building on the site would breach West Berkshire Council s existing as well as emerging policies He said that the proposed development would have a massive detrimental impact on already stretched local public services with acute pressure on secondary school places which would not be relieved by any of Blue Living s proposals Whilst acknowledging that the developer appeared to have made some progress on mitigating transport issues in discussions with West Berkshire Council Alok noted that Reading Borough Council was still opposed on traffic impact grounds and that the potential impact of IKEA s planning application needed to be factored into the equation before any final conclusion could be reached on transport and traffic matters He cited the potential detrimental impact on the AONB the local environment and the loss of a valuable public amenity and green space if any development on the site was allowed He noted that West Berkshire Council had already identified areas for development to meet the local area s housing needs up to 2026 and that Pincents Hill had been clearly rejected as a strategic site He asked the Planning Inspector to bear in mind the history of Pincents Hill pointing out that previous applications by Charles Church for much smaller developments on this site had also been eventually rejected Alok spoke in detail about the Government s emerging national planning policy with the Localism Bill which is currently making its passage through Parliament and the publication of the Department for Communities and Local Government s DCLG Business Plan for 2011 2015 Alok said The government is doing away with centrally imposed top down housing targets and giving more

  • Success for Pincents Hill Campaign!
    Berkshire Council deserves thanks for first omitting Pincents Hill as a strategic site from its core strategy and now rejecting Blue Living s application All of us opposed to this development also owe a huge debt of gratitude to the Save Calcot Action Group so ably lead by Joan Lawrie for all their hard work in opposing this development over the past 18 months Alok continued There were very many valid planning reasons to reject this application and quite simply this was the wrong development in the wrong place at the wrong time Despite the unanimous rejection by members of the planning committee I am quite sure that Blue Living will not simply go away and are no doubt considering an appeal We have won this battle but we may only be at the start of the war against development on Pincents Hill and local residents need to be prepared to continue the fight Councillor Joe Mooney who together with fellow ward members Tony Linden and Emma Webster campaigned against this development said As ward members we have been completely opposed to this development from the very start and so we are very pleased at the outcome for our local

  • Pincents Hill: Call to local residents to attend public meeting to show opposition to Blue Living's plans
    councillors have been completely opposed to Blue Living s plans ever since the developer made public its intentions in September 2008 and have been working with local residents and the Save Calcot Action Group to stop any development on this site Around 900 local residents responded to a Pincents Hill survey previously circulated by Alok and the councillors and the survey results showed huge local opposition with 85 of respondents opposed to any development on Pincents Hill Alok Sharma said I am very pleased that West Berkshire Council officers have recommended that Blue Living s application should be rejected and I very much hope that the planning committee will share this view Local people are overwhelmingly opposed to any development on this site and I hope their views will prevail Alok continued To West Berkshire Council s credit they have already listened to local people s views on the local development framework and excluded Pincents Hill as a strategic site from that plan despite huge pressure from central Government to concrete over all our green spaces Councillor Joe Mooney added The LDF was a great result for local people but we still need to make sure Blue Living s application

  • Sharma applauds West Berkshire LDF recommendation on Pincents Hill
    been campaigning over the past year with local residents and local campaign groups such as the Save Calcot Action Group to stop inappropriate and over development in the constituency said I am absolutely delighted that the recommendation at West Berkshire Council is not to include Pincents Hill and Whitehart Meadows as strategic sites in the LDF This news will come as a wonderful early Christmas present for all local residents Conservative councillors and the Save Calcot Action Group who have campaigned so hard over the past year to stop development at these sites The stance of local councillor Joe Mooney and others on West Berkshire Council in ensuring that inclusion of sites such as Pincents Hill in the LDF needed to be fully consulted upon has been comprehensively vindicated Conservative West Berkshire Council are to be congratulated on their common sense approach to the LDF I hope we will now see Blue Living s planning application for Pincents Hill rejected when it comes to planning committee early next year as well as success for the Save Calcot Action Group s village green application for the Pincents Hill site Photo Alok Sharma at Pincents Hill with Save Calcot Action Group members

  • Local residents urged to respond to West Berkshire's Development Consultation by 3 July deadline
    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 capacity Current public services are already under pressure with local secondary schools over subscribed and any major increase in local population will lead to a significant worsening of this situation Additionally any developments in these areas will have a negative impact on wildlife with the loss of an important habitat I would urge all local residents who are opposed to building on these sites to write to or email West Berkshire Council by the deadline of 3 July with a letter of objection asking for these
