Do you agree with offices being converted to housing?

Is it right to turn so many office blocks in West Berkshire into flats?

Do you agree with offices being converted to housing?

Yes, we need homes more than we need any other buildings at the moment

Yes, but only if we replace the offices that are lost

No, this is taking too many jobs away from West Berkshire

I don't know

    business parks should be kept as such. not given to property agents to make money on. Newbury needs to have more companies move into these empty offices not people living in them. Their are plenty of new builds already built and properties that people can buy or rent, which these office buildings wont be for social or council these would be for private buyers and not affordable housing. these would be for people who work out of newbury. Their is plenty of land that is not green or flood plain that the council or companies can buy and build on that wont effect people close by.and their are plenty of properties that can be bought. The council and housing Associations can build for people who are in need of housing. I am against office buildings being turned into living apartments due to lack of parking and safety for people and their child or children and also if they are turned into apartments people will start to moan of the noise from the business park and lack of parking.
