Housing and community development

 

We, like most of Southeast England, are experiencing a housing shortage.

Our vision for providing the majority of the needed housing, is through 4 strategic development locations

  • Arborfield Garrison – this development includes new homes, 2 new primary schools, a secondary school, local shopping facilities, open spaces and roads including the Arborfield Relief Road, an extension of Nine Mile Ride and improvements to the California Crossroads junction
  • Shinfield Parish – based around the villages of Shinfield, Spencers Wood and Three Mile Cross, this development includes new homes, 2 new primary schools, school expansion, local shopping facilities, open spaces and roads including the Shinfield Eastern Relief Road
  • North Wokingham – this development includes new homes, a new primary school, local shopping facilities in a new neighbourhood centre, open spaces and roads including the North Wokingham Distributor Road
  • South Wokingham – this development includes new homes, 2 new primary schools, local shopping and communities facilities, new open spaces and roads including the South Wokingham Distributor Road

These major developments will accommodate a total of about 10,000 homes in carefully planned new or extended communities.
