PremierLeague-News.Com - The 27 properties have been given planning permission
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Plans for new homes in Bracknell have been approved, even though locals have raised fears for local school children. The housing development in Binfield has been given planning permission after objections were raised over a 'dangerous' access road. Plans for the redevelopment of land between Turnpike Road and Cain Road for the construction of 27 houses, was first validated by Bracknell Forest Council in November 2019 – with the legal agreement framework completed this week. Technology company 3M UK PLC submitted the application, which outlines the main access from Turnpike Road, as well as associated vehicle parking and landscaping following the demolition of all existing buildings and clearance of the site. It received nine objections from people living in the area, predominantly in relation to the proposed access road, as they feel Cain Road would be the more appropriate. A one person living nearby, Steve Doran, said Turnpike Road is already “like a roller coaster” and in need of “urgent repair” as it is unable to cope with the current levels of traffic.

The science-based technology business has had its headquarters located in Bracknell since 1978. Since 2004, the head office has been based at the 3M Centre on Cain Road.

. The site, which measures approximately 1.29 hectares, currently contains three tennis courts, a single-storey pavilion building and a railway carriage, all of which are now disused and in a state of disrepair. Matters of layout, scale, appearance and landscaping are reserved until a later time, however, the application outlines a plan for the 27 houses to be made up of a mix of different sizes of up to 2.5 storeys, with a variety of car parking solutions including garages, driveways and parking bays. As well as the proposed Turnpike Road entrance, the submission also outlines a new walking and cycling connection onto Cain Road. Other objections were made citing privacy concerns, with one neighbour explaining that the proposed access would mean cars could see “directly into [their] rear bedroom windows”, as well as over development in the area. Resident of Tippits Mead, Avis Gibbins, said: “The general feel of the town is that building flats [and] houses is happening on every bit of green or unused space and the area is already spoilt as a result. “Roads and infrastructure cannot cope with the influx of so many people and existing residents can no longer enjoy peace and quiet with absolutely no views apart from buildings and parked cars.” Read Next: Reading café shuts doors for final time Search for wanted man who failed to appear before court Bins to be collected early as temperatures set to climb again Temperatures in Reading to hit 29C next week Covid cases fall across Reading and other Berkshire areas
