The Woodley Arms
Waldeck Street
Reading RG1 2RF

Erection of a block of 40 studio student apartments including parking, amenity space and landscaping following demolition of existing public house.

This is a resubmission of application 150134 that was refused on 27 March 2015 and was then taken to an appeal by the developer and was again refused. There was strong local opposition to the scheme.

When asked to comment, Katesgrove Councillor Rose Williams said, ‘ I will do all that I can to get this stopped before it goes any further!’

This application attempts to address the reasons for the refusal of the earlier application. Changes include a reduction in roof height, demonstrated on one of the elevations submitted with the application.

The building obtained planning approval (140524) for conversion of the building to four flats on 24 July 2014.
