The Woodley Arms on Waldeck Street was not on the agenda of the 8 November Reading Borough Council (RBC) plannning applications committee but still got a mention.

The recent planning application for demolition of the pub and replacement by 38 student flats will be coming to a future planning committee for a decision to be made. It was included on a list of applications for which committee members might want to visit the site.

Councillor Ricky Duveen asked if a briefing note could be prepared for councillors explaining the differences between the current (1717893) and the previous application (160558) to help if they visited the site.

This request was re-iterated by chair of the committee, Councillor Marian Livingston.

The request can seen on the webcast [at 04:00].
