‘We built critics’ houses’

JOHN HICKS, of Hicks Development, said: “We built 130 houses there back in the Eighties.

“At that time Wokingham Borough Council wanted us to sign an agreement that we would not apply for further planning permission for 11 years, which has come and gone.

“Most of the people complaining are the ones who are living in the houses we built.

“We are proud of the houses we have built there but you cannot buy a house with a green field next to it and not expect it to be built on. The Government is saying it wants new houses built so people cannot have it both ways.

“Presumably children from the new houses would go to the new school, which would save car travel.

“We own the land, we are developers and we want to build on it.”
