Yesterday, we were delighted to welcome Deputy Leader of Reading Borough Council & Lead Councillor for Strategic Environment, Planning and Transport Cllr Tony Page as our guest Politics of Planning virtual breakfast speaker.
Colleagues from a Bellway, Bewley homes, Segro, Sovereign Housing, Savills, Boyer, Pegasus and Lichfields joined us via Zoom to discuss the difficulties the Council faced through its tight boundaries, Reading’s burgeoning reputation amongst both multinational and local companies, and the post-pandemic changes that could affect the future of housing and infrastructure in the borough.
We would like to place on record our thanks to Cllr Page and all our guests for their time and contributions to another successful Politics of Planning breakfast. On December 1st we will be hosting Clive Betts MP, Chair of the Commons MHCLG Select Committee via Zoom. If you would like to sign up, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The meeting will be a unique opportunity to discuss with a leading Member of Parliament the Government’s proposed planning reforms.
