New resident's meetings and social groups
When there are about 100 new homes being lived in, we host a ‘new neighbours’ meeting to welcome new residents to Wokingham. We use this meeting to introduce ourselves, our partners and the services that we provide. We work with partners in this effort, usually the developers, Churches Together and housing associations. We encourage the residents to build relationships, establish a Facebook group, and then start a Residents Association. Some of the events we’ve held in the past include pub quiz nights and community lunches.
Email CEM@wokingham.gov.uk to find out about the community-building work we are doing in your area.
The South Wokingham site will see around 2,500 new homes in total, with up to 636 north of the railway and 1,840 to the south. The part of the development north of the railway is currently being developed by David Wilson Homes and Barratt Homes as Montague Park. About 580 homes were completed by March 2020 and are being lived in. The first children's play area opened in September 2016. The project is expected to be complete by 2021.
The majority of the site is located south of the railway line and will require a new bridge across the railway so the South Wokingham Distributor Road can continue through the development.
There are currently 3 planning applications being considered. for development south of the railway. Refs. 191068, 190914, 190900.
