Reading Station Hill Plans On Display
31 March 2012, 06:00
It's the last day you can have your say on plans for Station Hill in Reading.
Hundreds of people have already got in touch with their views on the plans, which include town centre car parking, offices, shops, cafés, homes and new public areas.
Friars Walk shopping centre will be completely demolished, as will the Western Tower and its connected buildings.
Designers want it to tie in to the changes at Reading Station - which is also undergoing a huge re-vamp due to be finished in 2018.
During the exhibition days held by developers at Reading Town Hall in February, 223 people handed in feedback forms asking what they thought about the architecture and design, as well as comments about the proposed development.
The results showed 98 per cent of people agreed the site needed to be developed with three quarters happy with the planned mix of homes, retail, leisure and public spaces.
All the feedback will now be summarised into a comprehensive report which will then be made available as part of the planning application going to Reading Borough Council sometime in the summer.
