The Facebook page “Stop the Proposed 87 New Homes Development on Agricultural Land on Lower Way, Thatcham” says the following:
Many residents & non residents use the field (proposed site) for recreational activities such as walking, bike ride’s, dog walking, picnics, playing games, flying kites etc & always have done. It is our little piece of enjoyable green space which is enjoyed & appreciated by many.
Such open spaces are most important for family life, growing children and a healthy society. I agree that we need new housing, but there is no need for new developments that encroach on well used greenfield land. Brownfield sites are the option favoured by Lib Dems. Local experts tell me there are sufficient brownfield sites in West Berks for 10 years of development before any green fields need to be considered.
