  • Tilehurst childcare petition | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    children a day has plans to extend its current building to provide an additional classroom and play facilities At weekends and during school holidays the extra classroom would also be used as a café so members of the local community could make use of the pre school s playground while enjoying a drink or snack Public toilets would also be provided during opening hours The land behind Newbery Lodge which it hopes to use for its extension is a corridor of land which leads on to Arthur Newbery Park but is not part of the main park and is currently unused However as the land is classified by Reading Borough Council as public open space the pre school s proposals have been dismissed Alok has been supporting Newbery Lodge s plans to expand since January 2014 and has been lobbying Reading Borough Council since then to encourage them to reconsider their inflexible approach An online petition has been launched to ask the Council to allow Newbery Lodge to expand and can be viewed by visiting https www change org p reading borough council help newbery lodge pre school and bring much needed facilities to arthur newbery park The petition has been welcomed by local residents and has received a large number of supportive comments which can be read on the petition website Alok Sharma said Given the Government s plans to extend free childcare for working parents of three and four year olds to 30 hours per week there will undoubtedly be a further increase in demand for childcare places It is therefore extremely short sighted of the Council to oppose the extension of Newbery Lodge which will increase choice for local parents and provide a café and toilet facilities for local people using Arthur Newbery Park Comments by members
