    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 large public meeting to inform local residents how they can register their objections and in order to send a loud and clear message to the developers we will need as many people as possible to write to West Berkshire Council to object Local resident and campaigner John Betteridge added We are constantly updating our website www savecalcot co uk with new information so please visit the site regularly Unless we are all prepared to play our part in rejecting any development at Pincents Hill we will lose

  • Local residents overwhelmingly reject plans to develop Pincents Hill site - Survey results
    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 ago together with local residents we fought off a smaller development proposed by Charles Church Nothing has changed since then and the reasons that development was rejected are still valid today I know local residents feel very strongly about this issue and this was clear both from the public meeting we held and also comments on the survey I want to assure everyone that together we will fight any development all the way Councillor Emma Webster added I very much hope that Pincents Hill is not included

  • Local Conservatives respond to Blue Living's ridiculous "Statement" on Pincents Hill survey results | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    views on a potential 700 900 home development by Blue Living at the Pincents Hill site Around 900 local residents responded to the Survey and the key findings 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 Blue Living subsequently put out a statement questioning the impartiality and objectivity of the survey and also questioned the robustness of the survey s methodology and statistical conclusions Alok Sharma and local councillors have responded to Blue Living s Associate Director Jonny Anstead as follows Dear Mr Anstead Re Pincents Hill Survey Thank you for your statement responding to the results of our Pincents Hill Survey I am sorry that you did not like the results of the survey and the clear message from 900 local people No Development at Pincents Hill To date all Blue Living has offered to local people is a cocktail of gibberish in all your literature The comment in your statement At Pincents Hill we aim to create a place which has a strong community a sense of belonging and shared identity is absolutely typical of Blue Living developer speak We already have a strong local community which is why so many local people are united to stop your development plans Please do go back to the comments from local residents which we received on the survey you can download the Survey Results document from our website at www readingwestconservatives com There are hundreds of comments expressing real concerns about the impact on local roads the environment and public services such as schools and doctors surgeries if your development goes ahead The vast majority of local people do not want the Pincents Hill site to be developed because they are fed up of unsustainable development being dumped on them in the name of Government housing targets However Blue Living would at least gain some respect if you addressed the real issues which concern people about this proposed development 1 Will Blue Living commit to providing the required level of funding to set up new schools new doctors surgeries and improve basic transport infrastructure in the local area and will you provide a cast iron guarantee that you will not try at a later date to wriggle out of such commitments 2 Local roads are already clogged up with traffic so how do you propose local people cope with thousands of extra cars on the road at peak times if your development goes ahead 3 How can local
