We the undersigned petition Wokingham Borough Council to not include any significant housing development at Hall Farm as part of its Local Plan Update.

YES PLEASE:
• Infrastructure keeps up with housing
• Flood plain used for water not houses
• Farmland used for growing food
• Green space for biodiversity and leisure
• Quality homes locals can afford
• Properly resourced neighbourhoods
• Good access to medical and dental care
• Equity of housing distribution across the whole of the Borough
• Safe, easy access to public transport, cycleways, greenways and footpaths
• Net Carbon Zero by 2050
• Highspeed broadband across all areas
• Local community, history & heritage valued
NO THANK YOU:
• Sewage system unable to cope
• Flooding (as at Winnersh)
• Imported (high carbon footprint) food
• Urban sprawl from Reading to Wokingham
• Expensive houses for newcomers
• Anti-social behaviour
• Long waits, difficult journeys, poor service
• Green Belt North Wokingham v Housing Estate South Wokingham
• Grid locked roads full of polluting cars
• Cutting down trees, pulling up hedgerows and building on fields
• Postcode lottery of internet access
• Unrestricted development that ignores the wishes of local people
