Wokingham planning applications submitted for Elms Field and Peach Place0
Wokingham Borough Council’s chief executive Andy Couldrick and executive member for regeneration Cllr Alistair Corrie officially submitted the ten box applications at the council’s Shute End offices on Friday November 15.
This is an important phase in these pioneering £95million plans to create a healthy retail and leisure rich town centre which will flourish, and give the borough’s current and new residents the facilities they need.
The submission of the applications also marks the start of statutory public consultation so that people can see the proposals in detail and submit their comments for consideration by the planning committee.
The applications include a new foodstore, hotel, new retail units, 157 homes and a new and improved town park at Elms Field as well as a redeveloped Peach Place plaza.
To take part in the consultation, people should click onto the planning section and type in the applications’ reference numbers F/2013/2283 for Market Place/Peach Street and Rose Street (Peach Place) and F/2013/2284 for the land between Wellington Road and Shute End (Elms Field and the Paddocks Car Park).
