Reading FoE December meeting etc.
Room 1 at RISC

Our next meeting is at RISC at 8:00 pm on Wednesday 13th December.
We will consider the success of our Clean Air petition – and how to carry this forward. We’ve made front-page news in Reading Midweek Chronicle, but the Council hasn’t yet said it will make changes. For links to presentation text and report on this see

We can talk about further work on East Reading Mass Rapid Transit after the well-attended debate last week.

We can have an initial look at response to Reading’s “Pre-Submission Draft Local Plan” – comments required by 26th January so we can return to this in January - see link to RBC documents.

Climate change and flooding in Reading: current and future risks
Building LO22 Room G01, London Road Campus, RG1 5AQ

The 'Place and Environment' series at the School of Architecture in affiliation with Barton Wilmore and Reading UK looks at climate change and flooding in Reading.

The Reading 2050 lecture series is a platform of discussion around the work of the Reading 2050 group established in 2013 by the School of the Built Environment, Barton Wilmore and Reading UK to deliver a strategic, long-term vision that will support the delivery of Reading's legacy of a truly smart & sustainable city.
