Plans for a two-bed house in Compton to be debated by West Berkshire Council
A 'garden grabbing' planning application to build a house in Compton is due for debate at West Berkshire Council today (Wednesday).
Compton Parish Council is objecting to the plan for a two-bed house on land north of Horn Street.
The parish council says it will impact on the street scene within the Conservation Area and have a detrimental impact on neighbouring gardens.
Other objectors pointed to an increase in traffic congestion as well as 'garden grabbing’ and over development of the area and village, which will soon see the former Pirbright animal research centre developed into housing.
But those in support say a smaller house is ideal for younger residents in the village getting on to the property ladder.
The council's western area planning committee has been recommended to approve the plans by officers.
