House in Meadow Way, Theale, burgled while occupants slept.
I have been informed by the parish clerk that "a house in Meadow Way was burgled last night whilst the occupants were asleep. The offenders climbed in through an open upstairs window and made off with all the vehicle keys, wallets, driving licences etc. The occupants discovered the break-in when they woke up this morning.

You may wish to spread the word that people need to take care when leaving windows open - burglars love the hot weather."

Latest news about the new Theale Primary School
Theale Parish Council discussed the planning application to provide a new playing field at its meeting on Monday. The proposed playing field would be in the corner of the field next to the golf course and is to partly compensate for the playing space that will be lost when the new primary school is built.

Parish councillors were told that West Berkshire Council's Public Rights of Way team were concerned about the current plan because it would obstruct the public footpath that runs down the side of the road to Theale Golf Club. They had asked for the plans to be changed to avoid the footpath.

There was also a request to thicken the landscape planting around the proposed playing field.

Changing the plans to accommodate these objections would probably mean that the space available for playing and/or parking would be reduced.

Further details of these concerns can be seen on "Update to Agent 1" under "Correspondence"  on http://planning.westberks.gov.uk/rpp/index.asp?caseref=17/00743/FUL. Plans for the proposal and other details can also be accessed on that page.

I have had approval from the chairman of the Eastern Area Planning Committee for the proposal to be decided at a meeting of the committee rather than by planning officers.

Closed public toilets in Theale could become a home
Theale Parish Council have decided not to try to re-open the public toilets sited next to the car park in Theale High Street. This leaves the way free for West Berkshire Council to take up an offer for the toilets from someone who wnats to develop them into a home. This proposal would still need planning permission.

My representation against the Theale Lakeside planning application appeal
Appeal reference APP/W0340/W/16/3159722
Representation by:
Alan Macro
Councillor for Theale
West Berkshire Council

The site is a prominent one on the edge of the village of Theale. It is separated from the North Wessex Downs AONB by the A340. It forms the setting to Theale when approaching on the A4 from the Newbury direction, from the A340 and when entering Theale from these directions. A development of this edge-of-village location should provide a “soft edge” to the village, marking the change from AONB and countryside to the more suburban nature of this end of the village.

The proposed development is not suitable for this edge-of-village location adjacent to the AONB because:

It would not therefore form the required soft edge to the village and would adversely affect the setting of the AONB.

The lake forms an important part of the site and its setting is very important. The proposed multi-storey apartment blocks on the south side of the lake are inappropriate as they would dominate the landscape and form a high and hard backdrop to views across the lake from the north and east.
The proposed access the to the angler’s car park would provide a short cut for pedestrians from the proposed development to access The Green (to get to Theale Green School or the library, for example). This would be to the detriment of the amenity of residents of the housing alongside this unmade-up lane.

Residents of the proposed four-storey apartment blocks adjacent to the Theale bypass would be subject to disturbance by significant traffic noise. Residents of the upper floors of these blocks would look out over the rail depots and associated industry on the other side of the bypass, as their windows would be higher than the trees screening the depots.
