Burghfield Lakes development

Yesterday I visited the Burghfield Sailing Club to see the latest exhibition on the Burghfield Lakes development, to respond to their consultation.
They have reduced the numbers of homes since the original scheme. They are putting in water handling to reduce flooding in the area when we get excessive rains, in addition to needing extra water handling to cater for the homes they wish to build. The development includes lakeside homes which float if water levels on the lake rise too much, and affordable homes.
If constituents do have concerns or are interested they should look at the latest plans at the Sailing Club exhibition and be aware that the company will soon be submitting an outline planning application.
I asked a number of questions about access, flood prevention and the nature of the properties. The lakeside homes do I am told meet requirements for home insurance and mortgages.
