Development proposal for Theale Lake - Consultation Events

A company is proposing to build 200 homes around Theale Lake. This is the lake that the Burghfield Sailing Club uses. It is the large lake you can see on the left as you cross Theale swing bridge on the way to Sheffield Bottom. You can also see it clearly from the M4. Please see this map.

The developer is holding two consultation events where you can see their plans and comment on them. The events will be held on:

  • Saturday 12th July, between 3:30 pm and 6:30 pm, at Burghfield Sailing Club, Hangar Road, Theale, RG7 4AP
  • Saturday 19th July, between 2 pm and 5pm, at Burgfield Village Hall, Recreation Road, Burghfield Common, RG7 3EN

You can see more details on the developer's website.

The proposal has been covered on BBC South Today news.

Please note that this site is not within a "settlement boundary" and is therefore regarded as being in the countryside by West Berkshire Council. As such, it is not regarded as a suitable site for housing under current planning policy. However, this could change over the next couple of years.
