Thatcham housing proposals to go on display

PROPOSALS for 75 homes in Thatcham will go on display today.

Agricultural land to the east of Tull Way and north of the Henwick Worthy playing fields has been put forward for development.

The site is being promoted by Bloor Homes on behalf of local farmer Caroline Graham.

The field was saved from having 90 homes built on it in 2013 after a planning appeal was quashed. More than 400 residents also signed a petition against the plans.

Bloor Homes now says that it has come up with “a more sympathetic plan” for the site, which includes public open space and access off of Tull Way. 

The community consultation will be held at Newbury and Thatcham Hockey Club at the Henwick Worthy Sportsground on Thursday, February 11. The event runs from 3pm until 7pm.

    Do the homes come with a hover car? Only way they will be able to get around but then that's not the developer's problem. Who on the council will profit from this deal?
