Dwyer Road Development

Closed 2 Feb 2023

Opened 23 Jan 2023


Reading Borough Council owns the former Alice Burrows Care Home site north of Dwyer Road and is seeking to sustainably redevelop this vacant brownfield site to create much-needed aff ordable family housing and new fl ats suitable for council tenants looking to downsize.

Designs are being developed ahead of submitting a planning application in Spring 2023. The project team are engaging with the local community and stakeholders now to help shape the emerging proposals. The new homes will be 100% aff ordable and managed by the Council. All homes are designed to be energy effi cient, highly sustainable, and constructed with high quality materials. The landscape will include biodiverse planting, new trees and natural play features.

Why your views matter

We want to hear your views on the plans, to help inform our design process prior to a planning submission. We will keep you informed and feed back to you with the findings.

There will also be further opportunities to submit formal comments on the
planning application to our Planning team.
