Consultation on new proposal for housing on the Lakeside site in ‪‎Theale‬

Consultation on new proposal for housing on the Lakeside site in ‪#‎Theale‬
The site is in the triangle formed by the Theale bypass, The Green and Volunteer Road. The site currently has planning permission for 350 homes (80% flats) on the southern part of the site. This permission was given by an inspector at a planning appeal.
The new proposal is for a total of 325 homes on both sides of the lake consisting of: a 70 unit extra care sheltered housing complex, 128 houses and a mixture of 3, 4, and 5 storey flats (60%). The density would be under 50 dwellings per hectare, compared to 78 per hectare under the scheme already given planning permission.

Each house would have on-plot parking and there would be one parking space for each flat plus visitor parking.
The material displayed at the open day can be viewed here
The first page shows the plan that has already been given planning permission. The last page shows how the buildings MIGHT look. Please send me any comments and I will get them passed on to the developers

Exhibition of new housing proposal for Lakeside site in Theale to be held on 19th August

A new housing development  is being proposed for the Lakeside site in Theale. The site is around the lake in the triangle of land between The Green, the Theale Bypass and Volunteer Road. The land south of the lake was given planning permission for 350 homes by a government inspector several years ago.

The new proposal covers the land both south and north of the lake, which have been under different ownership. If it goes ahead, it will be instead of the 350 homes already permitted.

The developer will hold a drop-in exhibition so that residents can see the proposals and comment on them. It will be held between 4pm and 8pm on Wednesday 19th August and will be held at:

The Peter Gooch Room
The Pavilion
Recreation Ground
Englefield Road

The Pavilion is the building next door to the village hall and social club.

Please pass this information on to your neighbours and friends in Theale.
