Please spread the word and if you'd like to find out more or get involved in other ways then let us know.

Save the Riverside - object to ERMRT again!
Sun 18 November 2018

Please log your objections to the East Reading Mass Rapid Transit soon - Wokingham's nominal 'consultation' period expires next week.

Read all about it on Save Our Ancient Riverside website!

Application is essentially the same as the one rejected by Wokingham on 'Landscape' grounds in the summer, except that they propose to add 'planters' of greenery.

To make it easy SOAR have links on their website (link below) - click on OBJECT NOW for guidance. Anyone can object - so object to both Wokingham and Reading at the same time!

Some people will be making complex objections on grounds of planning policy but a sentence or two on why you value the riverside will be enough to register your opposition.
