Plans exhibited for housing in Vastern Road

Berkeley Homes are planning to build around 200 houses and flats at the former Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) site in Vastern Road. The plans could also include a direct walkway and cycle lane linking Vastern Road with Christchurch Bridge.

The developer is looking to demolish a number of buildings on the site and replace them with homes including blocks of flats which could be as high as 11 storeys.

More than 250 people learnt about the major development planned for the former site of SSE in Vastern Road at an exhibition on Monday 25 February.

The plans are in their early stages, and the developer wanted to get feedback before a planning application is submitted to Reading Borough Council later this year.

The draft plans can be viewed online and comments can be made at
