A MAN has applied for permission to build two bungalows at the rear of his home in Old Bath Road, Charvil.
James Frankham says the properties would be for elderly local people who are looking to downsize but remain in the area.
Some residents support the plans, saying the village needs this kind of accommodation.
But Moira Nixon, of Old Bath Road, said: “I feel there would be too many houses on a small cramped area of land.
“In addition, access to and from the houses would be on to a part of Chiltern Drive that would make it dangerous for cars turning off from the A4.”
A decision on the application will be made by Wokingham Borough Council later this month.
