Grazeley: 15,000 homes are planned here

DAYS after the leader of Wokingham Borough Council said that enough was enough housing numbers, the Government has announced funding to enable 15,000 homes in a new town planned for Grazeley.

The £750,000 awarded is to specifically fast-track specialist survey and planning works necessary for the new town’s development.

Grazeley is famously the village where Sir John Redwood planted an oak tree as symbolic gesture that the land would never be built on.

Minister of State for Housing Kit Malthouse MP said: “The new Grazeley Garden Town could not only provide homes for local families, but would be a vibrant place where everyone, including the wider Wokingham area, can benefit from new infrastructure – leaving a legacy for future generations to be proud of.

“I congratulate Wokingham Council, West Berkshire District Council and Reading Borough Council for putting forward their ambitious proposal, which could deliver up to 15,000 high-quality homes, and am pleased to support them as they work to make these plans a reality.”

This is a better way forward than every small green space filled in across the boroughs and the traffic and resource issues we would face. New roads, new surgeries, new schools, new train stops and new homes for years to come.

Seems ‘Ian’ supports the delivery of 15000 homes in Grazeley. Burghfield Village has an ‘Ian’ Conservative District Councillor who supports the delivery of housing on Theale Lakes and next to ancient woodland in Burghfield Common – extremely anti-environmental. He supports development which is anywhere other than his own back yard. Funny that.

Tory boy and nimby through and through.

All I can say to John Redwood is “Broaksit”. Go figure. All the way to Dublin to say hello to your investment vehicles.
