Home Secretary offers to broker deal in planning row
HOME Secrerary Theresa May has offered to broker a peace deal in a planning row involving a garden centre.
She was speaking at a question and answer session for locals held at the Horns pub in Crazies Hill.
More than 100 people attended the event on Thursday evening last week, which also featured Wokingham borough councillors John Halsall and Bob Pitts and Wargrave Parish Council chairman Richard Bush.
Mrs May, who is MP for Maidenhead, said she shops at Hare Hatch Sheeplands, whose owner Rob Scott has been served with an enforcement notice by the borough council for allegedly using land to display and sell conservatories and greenhouses and extending the café and children’s play area.
Mr Scott has appealed and a hearing is scheduled to take place on May 13 having previously been postponed.
