My letter about changed IKEA plans published in today's Reading Chronicle

Dear Editor,

I was interested in your story that IKEA will soon be submitting a planning application for a smaller, two-story, store in Calcot (Chronicle, 20th November). The previous plan was for a three-story store that was 60 feet high. This would have been clearly visible to many homes in Theale. I therefore hope that the latest plan will be for a store that is less visually intrusive.

There is much concern in Theale and Calcot over the traffic that will be attracted to an IKEA store and the congestion this may cause. I therefore hope that a smaller store will not be used as an excuse by IKEA for reducing their contribution towards road improvements.

Kind Regards,

Alan Macro
Councillor for Theale
West Berkshire Council
