I was pleased to be able to listen to residents’ views at a public meeting regarding the Hosier Street Development on Thursday, and I am calling for a sensible redevelopment of the site.
I think there is a real opportunity for Reading to have an impressive redevelopment of this important site, however I have asked that the height and density of the development are reasonable to protect the interests of nearby residents and the historic environment.
Cllr Karen Rowland summed it up very well on twitter
“Thank you @bsanaorg and @MattRodda and @CllrTonyPage for a very informative and interactive event regarding the Hosier Street Development this evening. A great chance for some very interesting thoughts and Q&A from a very engaged community! “
