I think people are living in cloud cuckoo land if they believe building swathes of new housing will drive down prices. It just lines the (already bulging) pockets of the developers and the land owners. It will take a couple more interest rate rises to burst the housing bubble.

Just got an email from the council about the appeal, and information about the public inquiry hearing on 1/5/18.

Is that SODC or RBC? RBC have objected but aren't fighting that hard according to this Chronicle article.

Being cycnical, again, might it suit their third bridge campaign as traffic gets even more impossible in Caversham. It also boosts Reading's economy, even if it is a strain on services.

The email was from South Oxfordshire Council.

With regards to the Third Thames bridge, I would say they should build the bridge first, before they allow any sort of developments north of the river.

I'd truly love to agree with you ( my children are potential first time buyers ) but having read the posts on MGG on FB I have to tell you that many people are not getting what they hoped for, for their houses. So cloud cuckoo land it is, and I'm right there with you !

So sad to see a load of grey haired NIMBY's fighting this, its all that is wrong with this country.

I'm sure you could just as easily get 100 young people in support trying to buy their first home.

It looks like a perfectly acceptable development to me of much needed houses in north Reading.
Sad to see such ageism.

South Oxfordshire council know the traffic burden will be felt in Berkshire but it boosts South Oxfordshire government house building quota, I'm not suggesting South Oxfordshire council is pulling a crafty one!

Plenty of land nearer to Oxford they could build on!

But that would mean placing extra traffic and strain on the services in Oxford, their county town.

With the development sites around Reading, they would be contributing to their own housing targets, but push the pressure onto Reading. Win-win (for Oxfordshire Council).

Glad this appeal was refused, though. But I feel like it’s not going to be the last of the applications around Reading’s boundaries.

I share people's cynicism about Oxfordshire's intentions, but from what I've read recently South Oxfordshire are clear about not wanting to build directly on the border with Reading, and have convinced the authorities that their housing targets can be met.

Are they going to leave a 20 metre wide DMZ with the Reading border? ;-)

Of course and "all along the watchtower"s, as well.

Absolutely. Mines and automated machine guns too. Need to take back control of our borders. Can't have these damn immigrants from Oxfordshire jumping the queue and taking our jobs and using our public services.

Presumably you won’t be joining the new party, formed to fight for frictionless borders and definitely no customs checks on the Thames bridge crossings.
