2017-09-26 Barkham Square

Wokingham Borough Council suddenly advised that Barkham Square is being assessed as a major development site as part of the Local Plan Update. This would mean extending Arborfield Green (the former garrison site) by at least 58 hectares on open land to the north of Arborfield Green.


WBC do explain that no decisions have been made, but there is great danger that assessments such as this can gather momentum. No doubt this is a precursor to future battles to be fought protecting Barkham’s open spaces.

As an initial step, residents are encouraged to attend the Neighbourhood Plan event this Saturday, 30 Sep 12.30 to 3.30 at the Arborfield Green Community Centre in Shearlands Road. Members of the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group will be in attendance and will be interested to hear the opinions of residents. Alternatively fill in the online Feedback Form on the Neighbourhood Plan website www.arbarplan.com

Barkham Parish Council released the attached statement which includes further background. 

Kind Regards
