Development Watch Alert 30/11/2018 The Coombes - update
This is an update to our previous mails on the threat to The Coombes from the sale of plots of land. Previous alerts can be found on the BVRA website barkham.org.uk.
Jason Varley from WBC (Jason.Varley@wokingham.gov.uk) yesterday served a Temporary Stop Notice (TSN) in respect of one of the plots on the land at The Coombes where recent activity has been taking place. The TSN relates to the unauthorised use of the woodland for the storage of building materials. It requires the use to cease and the materials to be removed.
He will continue to monitor the site in order to check compliance so any residents noticing any untoward activity on the plots should notify Jason, copying the BVRA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to those residents who have recently reported activity, including the delivery of materials to build a shed or cabin on the site (which should now be removed).
BBC South Today included a filmed report from The Coombes yesterday, They interviewed some residents and one of the purchasers of the land. If you didn't see it, it may still be available on the iPlayer (but not for long).
