Mortimer is the first place in West Berkshire to prepare a Neighbourhood Development Plan. This morning I was briefed on where they have reached in making proposals and consulting the village. The two main issues being tackled are where new house building should take place, and how St John’s C of E primary school should be modernised and expanded.
Those interested can see the plan in the Parish office or on the website.(www.mortimer-ndp.org.uk). The survey has indicted that a majority favour a single location for new housing south of St John’s School.
