Greenbelt housing debate postponed
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.”
