  • Save the Bath Road Reservoir Group encourage public to participate in latest LDF consultation
    under consideration for development by Reading Borough Council It is absolutely clear that the vast majority of local residents want to preserve this site and see it turned into an educational resource for our local schools to study Reading s urban wildlife and unique architectural heritage Fellow campaigner Graham Griffiths added This is a unique site and a rare green lung in the centre of Reading which deserves to be preserved However we have always maintained that we are not anti development and would be prepared to take part in a reasoned discussion with Thames Water and Reading Borough Council on the sustainable number of homes this site could take Certainly the maximum of 80 homes being proposed in the current LDF proposals is way above what would be acceptable for local residents however we look forward to working with Reading Borough Council and all local politicians cross party who have supported us to develop a revised planning brief for the site which is appropriate and takes into account the views of the local community Alok Sharma commented I together with local councillors have been working with the Save the Bath Road Reservoir Group over the past two years to save this site The response of the Reservoir Group and local residents has been absolutely magnificient as we have all united together and seen off two unrealistic planning applications from Thames Water for the site However the battle is not won and unless we can get the LDF revised to either exclude this site from future development or at least get revised down significantly the maximum number of homes Reading Borough Council will accept on this site all the hard work of the past few years will have been wasted I would therefore urge all local residents to take part

  • Bath Road Reservoir site – reasons for rejection to be heard on 4th November
    will then not be able to overrule it and we won t end up with a potentially similar or worse development Local resident Graham Griffiths said Although we have come far it is still really important to keep the motivation on the campaign alive so we would ask as many people as possible to come along and show their support at this meeting We packed out the council chambers at the last meeting and it would be great if we can do this again Graham continued Now will be the chance for Thames Water to make good on their claims of putting the environment and the community at the heart of everything we do of which there has been very little evidence so far Alok Sharma the Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Reading West added We only achieved a partial victory with the rejection of this application last week and Thames Water will undoubtedly be reviewing their options for an appeal We therefore need all local residents and the whole community to continue to give their full support to the Bath Road Reservoir Campaign and working together we will win through The campaign will be meeting at 6 15pm outside the

  • Bath Road Reservoir site lives to fight another day
    we would encourage Thames Water to reflect on and be mindful of all the issues that were discussed and we would invite them to reconsider and come forward with a new vision for the future use of this site Mel Woodward a campaigner and local resident added We feel pleased that common sense has prevailed and that justice has been done with regards to the hugely unpopular development plans proposed by Thames Water We are not opposed to development but what Thames Water was proposing would have been a massive overdevelopment of the site completely out of keeping with the surrounding area and was driven by corporate greed We would welcome a reopening of our previous discussions with Thames Water as long as they will listen to us this time We do not feel that the previous public consultations they have done have been genuine exercises in listening to the real views of the community Mel Woodward concluded It is likely that Thames Water will appeal against this decision The public its representatives and the planning committee are aware of this and believe that there are an overwhelming number of legitimate planning reasons why the application should not be permitted We would invite Thames Water to approach the community and its representatives to discuss where we go from here Hopefully we can all work together to consider a vision that would be acceptable to us all would be a good use of the site be beneficial to the community and beneficial to Reading as a whole Alok Sharma the Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Reading West said The Bath Road Reservoir Group have lead a highly professional and sustained campaign against this development and both they and the whole of the local community richly deserve this magnificient result All the public

  • Street party raises awareness of Bath Road Reservoir Campaign
    behind the fun was the very serious objective of raising awareness of our collective opposition to Thames Water s plans to build 96 homes and commercial space on this beautiful green site Alok continued I have been very disappointed that neither Thames Water nor Reading Borough Council have been willing to listen to local residents wishes to extend the deadline for submission of objections beyond 14 September and there seems to be an undue haste to rush through a decision on these plans I just hope that the Council will see sense and reject Thames Water s application which is the outcome local residents want Bath Road reservoir campaigner Mel Woodward said Around 200 people came along to the party during the afternoon and evening and we had lots of fun activities for young and old including apple bobbing a fancy dress competition fire juggling and party games We certainly managed to raise awareness further in the local community about the need to object formally to Thames Water s application and the Bath Road Reservoir Campaign Group with assistance from Alok Sharma and his team have distributed standard letters of objection to over 3 000 homes in the area We would urge all local residents to complete and return these letters of objection as soon as possible adding their own comments as well The letter of objection can also be downloaded from our website www savethebathroadreservoir co uk Mel concluded If local residents really want to preserve this wonderful green space for current and future generations now is the time to act and object to this application we want to leave Reading Borough Council in no doubt about the strength of local feeling about this unwelcome planning application Photo Alok Sharma and campaigners Mel Woodward and Graham Griffiths with local

  • Sharma slams Bath Road Reservoir planning application
    Reservoir site Alok Sharma the Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Reading West said It is extremely disappointing that despite members of the Bath Road Reservoir Campaign Group and I meeting the Chief Executive of Thames Water in recent weeks to once again highlight the views wishes and concerns of local residents this planning application is materially no different from Thames Water s previous planning application Alok continued I really do think it is pretty unacceptable for Thames Water to say that they have taken into account the concerns of local residents when local residents clearly do not feel that their voices have been heard Thames Water ran a detailed public consultation process which now appears to have been nothing more than a hollow public relations exercise Alok concluded Together with local residents and the Bath Road Reservoir campaign group I will continue to fight this planning application all the way and when it comes to making its decision on this planning application I hope Reading Borough Council will come down on the side of local people and not Thames Water Campaign Save the Bath Road Reservoir Campaign Alok Sharma MP Reading West The Reading West constituency embraces parts of two local

  • Save Bath Road Reservoir group meets Thames Water Chief Executive
    from development Alok concluded The campaign group members and I pressed Mr Owens very hard and explained that Thames Water have not really listened to the views of local people so far and in any new planning proposal we want to see a much lower density of housing the retention of embankments around the site to retain the privacy currently enjoyed by local residents and a community facility along the lines of an educational resource centre which would give something back to the local residents Reservoir campaign group member Mel Woodward said David Owens said at the meeting that he had listened to our views and Thames Water would consider them very seriously We will find out in a matter of weeks when their new application is due to be submitted to Reading Borough Council just how much Thames Water have really listened to the ideas we put forward As a bare minimum we expect Thames Water to follow the guidelines set out in the Council s 1996 planning brief for this site These guidelines include the retention of the embankments buildings of no higher than 2 storeys and also recommended a maximum of 80 homes on the site In reality with all the development which has taken place around this area since then and the associated burden on local infrastructure in terms of traffic transport and schools we would argue that even 80 homes is now too many for this site Mel added We also gave Mr Owens letters written by local primary school children who want to save this green space for the wildlife and the local community Mr Owens promised to read the letters and if he does so I hope he will realise just what the reservoir site means to local people young and old alike
