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.

In principle I agree if they have been vacant for over 3 years, but this housing should only be social housing or for emrgancies,
I also think there is a massive lack of 1 bed flats that are suitable for single people. Again social and emergency housing only

We need more homes for people and much better to reuse redundant office space than have to demolish and build from scratch

Its crazy to keep converting offices to houses, the traffic problems will just increase as everyone will be leaving Newbury for work, this will impact the town overall even reducing the spending on the high street as there will be no-one shopping during lunch breaks.
Newbury will be just another commuter town or full of people on benefits as there will be no jobs for anyone.
