Views wanted on town centre plans
Station Hill
The planning brief is for the land between Station Hill and Friar Street
Residents are being invited to have their say on the future of the area around Reading railway station.

A planning brief for the land between Station Hill and Friar Street is going on display at the Civic Centre's Council Chamber on Thursday afternoon.

Planning officers will be on hand to answer any questions and residents have until 20 June to submit their comments.

Once it is adopted, the brief will offer guidance to anyone wishing to develop property in the area.

John Howarth, lead councillor for strategic planning, said: "The Station Hill area is very important to Reading and we now have a fantastic opportunity to improve this gateway to our town.

"This is a chance for the public to see the proposals, make comments and help to shape the future of the area."

The planning brief documents can also be found at all Reading libraries, at the council's planning reception at the Civic Centre and on its website.
