Development Watch Alert Sale of Land in The Coombes - a further update
Following our previous Development Watch alert and the article on page 10 in the latest (Autumn) Barkham Newsletter, here is a further update on the sale of land in The Coombes.
The BVRA received notification from a local resident that she had spotted some clearance work on plot 2. This was reported to Wokingham Borough Council and they have responded as follows:
‘The Tree and Landscape team have made contact with 3 new owners of parcels of land. They are aware that it is covered by a TPO. One owner stated that he had cleared a mound of soil, bracken and brambles from the front of his plot so that he may park his car there when he visits with his dog. This may be the area of which I was sent a photo last week.
There have been no further allegations regarding cutting of trees from anyone over the weekend until now so I presume no further works have occurred. We will continue to monitor the site but would welcome local users of the area keeping us informed if anything untoward is observed.’
