Burghfield Park – development proposals

 

Yesterday I attended the consultation for new homes proposed  to be built close to  the sailing lake in Burghfield by Floodline Developments. They explained that their plan allows for more water retention in the lake to alleviate possible floods nearby, with engineering works paid for out of the development gains. Some of the waterside homes would be floating structures, usually on firm land but capable of floating should the need arise to widen the lake and store more water temporarily.

I raised issues over density and style of development, and said I would pass on any further objections or worries constituents have. Constituents can also view the proposals for themselves on www.floodlinedevelopments.com and respond to the consultation directly.
