Information released

Planning application 16/01685/OUTMAJ

The original correspondence from West Berkshire and ONR’s response to the planning application 16/01685/OUTMAJ is available on the West Berkshire website.

Planning application 18/03027/COND1

Planning application 18/03027/COND1 relates to an “Application for approval of details reserved by condition 7: Access details, 8: Visibility splays, of permission 16/01685/OUTMAJ. Land Adjacent to Primrose Croft Reading Road Burghfield Common Reading Berkshire”.

This application does not meet ONR’s consultation criteria as there is no increase in population associated with the cited conditions. Therefore, ONR was not consulted on this application.

Highways/road changes on the Reading Road, Burghfield Common

ONR has no correspondence relating to highways/road changes on the Reading Road, Burghfield Common. Reading Road is not proximal to the Burghfield site.  As the point of closest approach is more than 200m from the site boundary any road works on it would not present an external hazard to the site. Therefore, any application in relation to highways/road changes would not meet ONR’s consultation criteria.
