A massive 2,500 homes could be built in a village in Berkshire if plans are given the go ahead.

Developers Berkeley Group have a plan to build a 2,500 home community on land on the outskirts of Twyford.

This new community would be served by a new primary school, a health centre, new shops, and nearby parks.

It would also have new transport links, including a train station and bus stops.

A CGI of the plan shows people enjoying a landscaped park area with a water feature, a bus stop, and residences in the background.

A spokesperson for Berkeley Group said: “We are now beginning to consult the local community on outline proposals for a sustainable new neighbourhood to the east of Twyford, which could help the borough to address both its undersupply of new housing and relieve the development pressure on the south of the borough where around 95 per cent of new homes have been built since 2007.

“Our outline proposals include a mix of private and affordable homes, alongside new community amenities, including parks, a health centre, primary school and local shops.

“This new part of Twyford would include a new railway station and local bus interchange, a relief road to ease traffic congestion in the centre of Twyford and a 140-acre network of green open space and wildlife corridors, including newly created woodland, wetlands, ponds, swales, hedgerows, and tree belts.

“This biodiverse landscape, which is currently fenced off to the public, would be open to all, with green cycling and walking routes and a mix of parks, community gardens, allotments and playing fields.”

The new community would be built on land  to the east of Twyford and Ruscombe between the A4 New Bath Road in the north and the railway line to the south.

Twyford falls within Wokingham Borough, therefore developers need permission from the council for any work to take place.

The plan is currently in its embryonic stage. In order for it to go ahead, the land needs to be allocated for development in the Wokingham Local Plan update.

A series of different pieces of land are being considered for development, and these areas need to be allocated within the Local Plan update before more detailed consultation planning can begin.

These sites can be seen by going to the Local Plan update website here then clicking on the interactive map tab.

From there, click the layers button and then make sure the ‘Local Plan Update Suggested Sites’ box is ticked to see all the sites being considered.

The proposed development in Twyford stretches across site references 5RU001 to 5RUOO6 on that map, excluding land south of the railway line.

Wokingham Borough Council is currently considering a range of sites for development as part of the Local Plan update.

The Local Plan update will determine which places can be built on throughout the borough. It is set to be completed by the end of 2023, and will be approved by the council’s executive committee.
