Cabins plan turned down

PLANS to install 10 temporary cabins in Crazies Hill to house workmen have been turned down.

Cayton Park wanted the Bunkabins for the  stonemasons who will be working on the construction of Juddemonte House, a new seven-bedroom home which was granted planning permission last year.

But Wokingham Borough Council says they would be harmful to the green belt and countryside as well as affecting the “visual amenity and character of the area”.

It also said insufficient information had been submitted to demonstrate there would be no adverse impact on an oak tree.

Cayton Park said the five single and five double cabins would be in a field off Hatch Gate Lane, which is owned by the estate but residents complained that they would be too close to homes and would be disruptive, causing light pollution and extra traffic.
