  • Sharma welcomes planning decision on Underwood Road development
    Speaking after attending the planning meeting with local residents Alok said I applaud West Berkshire Council for their common sense approach in approving this application which will result in a development in keeping with the local area and finally restore a site which has been an eyesore for years I have had an opportunity to work on this issue with some of the local residents like Marius Hopley Elaine Rosier and Alan Jewell who have all campaigned so hard to deliver a development which makes sense for the local community and I take my hat off to them for their perseverance Alok continued One of the issues which some local residents have raised with me is the lack of a local shop and post office as part of the new development but Holybrook Parish Council Chairman Mary Bedwell and Deputy Chairman Claire Tull have been working incredibly hard to see if a community shop facility can be delivered Discussions are underway with key stakeholders and I have been very happy to provide support as the local MP where required Campaign Underwood Road Precinct Development Alok Sharma MP Reading West The Reading West constituency embraces parts of two local unitary authorities

  • Early Christmas present for Underwood Road campaigners
    Christmas present to all local residents by rejecting this application The local residents campaign group who have worked so hard to present the case on behalf of the local community deserve special thanks I objected to this planning application on the grounds that the planned development would be completely out of keeping with the surrounding area and too dominant at up to 4 storeys high and dense and this has clearly been recognised by the planning committee Alok added Reference was made by members of the planning committee to emerging national planning policy under the Coalition Government and this is going to be absolutely key Localism is at the heart of the Government s agenda and the Localism Bill which has started its passage through Parliament has the underlying principle of delivering a radical shift in power from the central state to citizens and local communities The Bill will radically reform the planning system to give local people new rights to shape the development of the communities in which they live which is going to be very good news for all those who want a balance in development going forward Campaign Underwood Road Precinct Development Alok Sharma MP Reading West
