Developers are proposing to build 88 new homes on the former sewage works site at the end of Blossom Lane in Theale. The map below gives the location of the site:

This site was one of those considered for a site for housing by West Berkshire Council last year, but was rejected because of:

Access problems
Motorway noise
Site crossed by power lines
Flooding risk
Possible contamination

However, the developer was represented at the public examination of the Council's proposed sites for housing. Their agent was trying to convince the inspector to have the site allocated.

No planning application has been submitted yet, but the developers will be holding a public exhibition of their plans at:

        The Peter Gooch Room
        The Pavilion
        Recreation Ground
        Englefield Road

On Monday 18th July between 3pm and 8pm

Their agent told the inspector that they aimed to submit an outline planning application in August.
