Water Oakley development should be refused, say parish council
Plans to build 44 new homes in Water Oakley
Plans to build 44 homes on a site in Water Oakley were recommended for refusal by Bray Parish Council yesterday.

The plans include demolishing eight houses on the green belt site, and relocating the Phoenix Gymnastics club currently based in Water Oakley Farm.

A 2005 application to build 65 dwellings on the site was refused by the Royal Borough on the grounds that it was over development of the green belt.

Cllr Helen Howard presented the application, submitted by Farmglade, to councillors and members of the public at an extraordinary planning meeting held at Saxons Barn on Dedworth Road.

She made a proposal recommending refusal. She said: "I'm still of the opinion that it is too much on the greenbelt. The reason for turning down the first time round has not changed at all."

Bray Parish councillors voted six to five in favour of Cllr Howards recommendation.
