The view from Katesgrove Hill

Future of the Woodley Arms and derelict land in Katesgrove

Two important local applications will be presented at the Planning Applications Committee on the evening of Wednesday 20 July 2016.

It is not the first time that either site has been considered by the committee and many interested parties will be familiar with the applications.

A large development of 84 assisted living units (160868) is planned for the corner of Silver Street and Crown Street (pictured left). The site has been derelict for some time. This is a resubmission of a previous application (151702) which was deferred at the 6 April 2016 planning applications committee.

The Woodley Arms (pictured right) development of 40 student studio apartments (160558) was deferred at the 29 June planning applications committee pending a site visit by committee members. The visit took place on Thursday 14 July.

There are other major applications at this meeting including:

The meeting will take place at 6.30 pm on Wednesday 20 July, in the Council Chamber at the Civic Offices, Bridge Street, Reading, RG1 2LU.

The meeting is expected to be webcast.
