Theale company appeals council’s refusal of 110 new homes at Mortimer Common

An appeal has been made to the secretary of state over West Berkshire Council’s refusal to grant planning permission for a major housing development.

TA Fisher and Sons Ltd is appealing after the council refused its proposal to build 110 dwellings – including affordable housing – open public space and associated landscaping on land south of Tower Gardens at Mortimer Common last April.

The proposal would also include building a new infant school and GP surgery, including a shared parking area.

But the council previously ruled the application was unacceptable due to the visual impact which would be created by the structures.

The appeal will be determined based on written representations, which will be considered by the planning inspector.
