Petition Against Housing Development

Residents living in Bowling Green Road Thatcham, have collected signatures for a petition against a 90 house development north of the garden centre, with a single road access off Tull Way.

The petition refers to several aspects including; 
  • The land that the developer wants to build on has a designation of Important Open Space,
  • Thatcham already has a five year supply of housing development
  • There will be more pressure on local doctors, dentists and schools.
  • The housing development will also blight views across the open agricultural land to the distant rolling hills and farmland.
I will be presenting the petition on behalf of the residents to the Executive meeting on Thursday 14 June.
