Reading Uni: Home Plans

Plans for Reading University to build more than 1,000 homes and a school are being considered by the government.

Wokingham Borough council refused the proposals for Shinfield - saying it was too many houses. 

The Secretary of State will make a final decision later this year. 

David Savage, Chief Operating Officer, University of Reading: "The University of Reading welcomes the Secretary of State's announcement that he is minded to allow the University's planning appeals on applications to develop land at Shinfield West, subject to a number of conditions. The Secretary of State has agreed with the conclusions of the Public Inquiry Inspector that the development would make a significant contribution to providing the strategic housing requirement. The University will now await a final decision from the Secretary of State later this autumn."
