Greenbelt hous­ing de­bate post­poned

The Wokingham Paper - - NEWS -

A PLANNED de­bate on hous­ing in the greenbelt has been post­poned.

A lack of park­ing at Shute End is the rea­son why the Cam­paign to Pro­tect Ru­ral Wok­ing­ham has re­quested the de­lay to the dis­cus­sion, which was due to be held at a Wok­ing­ham Bor­ough Coun­cil meet­ing on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 20.

In an email sent out last week, CPRW said: “Due to the ex­ten­sive de­vel­op­ment around the Coun­cil Of­fices, the park­ing is se­verely cur­tailed, and the traf­fic wardens are ex­tremely en­er­getic.

“There has been a sub­stan­tial re­sponse from Cam­paign­ers, which would re­sult in many who want to be there be­ing un­able to come.

“Also, the pro­gramme for the lo­cal plan has been ex­tended and post­poned, there­fore the qual­ity of the de­bate would likely be lim­ited to hold­ing answers.

“We are likely to pe­ti­tion for the de­bate to be held at a time when the de­bate is most likely to con­trib­ute pos­i­tively to de­ci­sion mak­ing; this is likely to be next year, 2019.”
