Arborfield Garrison & Adjoining Land Exhibition of Planning Application Proposals 25th April 2013 Visioning and Issues Post-it Workshop Community Planning Weekend - issues workshop using post-it notes Community Planning Weekend - Hands-on Planning Workshop Community Planning Weekend - Hands-on Planning Workshop Community Planning Weekend - Report back exhibition BACKGROUND Following an extensive period of public consultation Wokingham Borough Council’s Core Strategy identified Arborfield SDL as a Strategic Development Location (SDL) in 2010, to deliver 3,500 new homes. Ownership of the developable parts of the site is shared between two main parties: a consortium of landowners known as the Arborfield Garrison Landowners’ Consortium (AGLC); which is a collaboration between Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) and Wates Development Ltd; and the Marino Family Trust (MFT). The Consortium owns approximately half of the area allocated for development and will account for 2,000 of the proposed new homes, new secondary school, new district centre with a foodstore, shops and other services and a neighbourhood centre with a new primary school. The Marino Family Trust Company Ltd (MFT) owns the southern part of the SDL. This area will accommodate 1,500 new homes, a further primary school, employment and burial ground. The focus for Arborfield Garrison is planning for the creation of a great place to live, including the best range of local facilities that can be achieved. A key part of the process is the preparation of a masterplan for the area. The masterplanning team, led by John Thompson & Partners (JTP) and supported by GVA (planning consultants) and AMEC (technical consultants), has been employed by the AGLC, working closely with Wokingham Borough Council, and other stakeholders, to draw up a masterplan for the area, taking into account the Planning Authority’s Core Strategy and Supplementary Planning Document that has been adopted by the Council (2011). The Marino Family Trust has employed its own masterplanning team, led by Wei Yang and Partners, who are working in consultation with JTP to ensure a coordinated approach to masterplanning the SDL as a whole. ABOUT US & PURPOSE DEFENCE INFRASTRUCTURE ORGANISATION (DIO) DIO represents the Ministry of Defence as the majority land owner within the SDL on all estate development matters. WATES DEVELOPMENTS Wates Developments is an expert in land, planning and joint ventures in residential development throughout southern England. Privately owned by the Wates family for more than 115 years, their commitment to residential development remains at the heart of their business. Wates Developments open and consultative approach to the community is consistent with the highly regarded corporate responsibility credentials of the Wates Group. PURPOSE The purpose of this exhibition is to inform the community about the planning application proposals for a major mixed-use development at Arborfield Garrison and adjoining land. The proposals have been developed in close consultation with the local community through hands-on planning workshops held during a Community Planning Weekend in January 2013, and have involved pre-application discussions with the Council. A planning application has now been submitted to Wokingham Borough Council by the Arborfield Garrison Landowners’ Consortium (AGLC). It includes outline plans for up to 2,000 new homes, elderly care, extensive landscape and recreational greenspaces, a neighbourhood centre with a new primary school and secondary school, and a new village centre with a community hub, foodstore, shops and other community services. The application also includes detailed proposals for access, and provision of Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspaces (SANGs). The aim of the exhibition is to outline the main elements of the planning application and explain how the proposals have been revised to take account of the views of the local community. This event is separate from the Council’s statutory consultation process and is being hosted by the applicants for information purposes. Full technical reports accompanying the planning application can be viewed independently at the offices of Wokingham Borough Council’s Planning Department, and on its website. Background information can be viewed on the AGLC’s own website – arborfieldvision.com – and technical reports can also be downloaded from this website. We welcome comments about the proposals, which can be posted on the AGLC’s website, however formal submissions about the planning application should be directed to the Council. THE AGLC PLANNING APPLICATION The planning application was submitted on 8th April and, following validation, will be determined in a 28-week period. It is accompanied by a suite of approximately 20 technical documents and a number of plans, which provide a comprehensive level of information about the proposed development. These include: The Planning Statement, which provides a summary of the scheme and assesses it against national and local planning policies; The Transport Assessment (TA), which considers the impacts of the proposals upon the local highway network and how these can be mitigated; The Design and Access Statement (DAS), which assesses the implications of the scheme from a design perspective, and incorporates an indicative masterplan; and The Statement of Community Participation, which discusses how the proposals have been shaped by local community views. A full list of submitted documents is found in the Planning Statement. Further information on the planning application determination programme and next steps is provided on the last exhibition panel.

The SDLs include Arborfeld, south of the M4 together with North and South Wokingham. They have been chosen by the Council to deliver for the area through locating schemes where they can provide sustainable access to both existing facilities or where improvements are readily deliverable.SuPPlEMEnTarY PlannIng docuMEnTTo guide the SDL proposals for Arborfeld Garrison, the Council adopted a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) in October 2011. This documents purpose is to establish Wokingham Borough Councils expectations about the masterplanning and design quality that will be forthcoming in future planning applications and subsequent approved development. It does not contain detailed proposals for the SDL and it is not poplicy but it is a material consideration in determining the appropriateness of planning applications and in moving forward through implementation.Wokingham Wokingham Wokingham Wokingham Wokingham Wokingham Wokingham Wokingham WokinghamTown Centre Town Centre Town Centre Town Centre Town Centre Town Centre Town Centre Town Centre Town CentreNorth Wokingham North Wokingham North Wokingham North Wokingham North Wokingham North Wokingham North Wokingham North Wokingham North WokinghamSouth Wokingham South Wokingham South Wokingham South Wokingham South Wokingham South Wokingham South Wokingham South Wokingham South WokinghamSouth of M4 South of M4 South of M4 South of M4 South of M4 South of M4 South of M4 South of M4 South of M4Arborfield Garrison Arborfield Garrison Arborfield Garrison Arborfield Garrison Arborfield Garrison Arborfield Garrison Arborfield Garrison Arborfield Garrison Arborfield Garrison Crown copyright and database rights 2010 Ordnance Survey 100019592Strategic Development Locations (source: Wokingham Borough Council)ocToBEr 2012JTP appointed to review draft AGLCmasterplannoVEMBEr 2012 - JanuarY 2013Prelimery review of previousmasterplan18 & 19 JanuarY 2013Community Planning Weekend8 aPrIl 2013Planning application submitted to Wokingham Borough CouncildEcEMBEr 2012Focussed stakeholder consultations and preparation of consultation masterplanfEBruarY 2013Focussed stakeholder consultations14 MaY 2009Stakeholder Workshop,Wokingham Borough Council Offces20 JunE 2009Community Workshop 1Arborfeld Parish HallSEPT - ocT 2009Options ExhibitionWokingham Borough Council Offces17 - 19 JunE 2010Wokingham Community Hubs ConsultationFinchampstead25 JulY 2009Community Workshop 2Wokingham Borough Council OffcesfEB - MarcH 2010Statutory Consultation 1ocT 2011SPD adopted9 &10 dEcEMBEr 2010Exhibition of previous AGLC draft framework planPrEVIouS conSulTaTIon & PlannIng HISTorYWIdEr conTExTThe Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) adopted by WBC31October 2011Section 3:Vision & Development Concept0km 1kmFigure 3.1: Preferred Spatial Framework Plan (exact development areas to be agreed through ongoing discussions with LPA)This map is based upon Ordnance Survey Material with the permission of Ordnance Survey on behalf of the Controller of HMSO Crown Copyright.Unauthorised reproduction infringes Crown Copyright and may lead to prosecution or civil proceedings.Wokingham Borough Council License No. 100019592 2009.

These impacts are assessed in the Transport Assessment, and measures put forward to mitigate these effects. AGLC will only be responsible for addressing issues resulting directly from the HPA development; resolving any pre-existing traffc problems is a separate matter for the Local Highway Authority. Three key strategic improvements have been put forward as follows:i. Arborfeld Cross Relief Solution - Wokingham Borough Council are currently reviewing options for a potential bypass to Arborfeld Cross. This is as an alternative to the nil-detriment solution proposed by AGLC involving improvements to Arborfeld Cross roundabout. In principle, AGLC would be willing to make an appropriate fnancial contribution towards the Councils bypass scheme in accordance with relevant legal guidance and recent appeal decisions. ii. Shinfeld East Relief Road - AGLC will be willing to make an appropriate fnancial contribution towards its delivery based on the comprehensive assessment of traffc impacts in the Transport Assessment. iii. Public Transport Improvements - it is proposed to improve the No.144 bus service, together with other measures to enhance the sustainability of the development from a transport perspective.30 JanuarY 2013Report back and exhibition of revised consultationmasterplan Arborfeld Garrison & Adjoining Land Exhibition of Planning Application Proposals 25th April 2013SITE conTExTLocation of imagesExISTIng SITE fEaTurESHorse Infrmary Sergeants MessGymnasium145632NUFFIELD ROADBIGGS LANECOMMONFIELD LANEPARK LANEA327 EVERSLEY ROADLANGLEY COMMON ROADSHEERLANDS ROADNINE MILE RIDE76191052348View south from Nuffeld Road towards Arborfeld Garrison View west from Nuffeld/Sheerlands Road intersection towards A327 4View north-west from Isaac Newton Road towards hangarView north of the balancing lakeWater Tower The Moat HouseCommunity Centre1 23 45 67108 9Application BoundaryLand within ownership, outside of the application boundaryArborfeld Garrison & Adjoining Land Exhibition of Planning Application Proposals 25th April 2013Nicky Fords postcard collection (Arborfeld Local History Society)Nicky Fords postcard collection (Arborfeld Local History Society)Nicky Fords postcard collection (Arborfeld Local History Society)1086 Finchampstead recorded within the Hundred of Cerleton in Williams Domesday Book, which listed a large oak forest that could support 200 swine. Finchampstead was directly under the rule of William the Conqueror (died 1087) and then Henry I (King from 1100-1135), who granted the area to the Lord of Aldermaston.13th Century Finchampstead became possession of Alard Banister, whose Grandson did not have any male heirs. The Royal Forest was then subdivided into four Balliwicks which included Finchampstead Balliwick and this was broken into four Walkes: Bearwood, Easthampstead, Sandhurst and Bigshotte.1607 Enclosures are shown on maps of Swallowfeld, Arborfeld and Oakingham however Finchampstead remained open heath and woodland until 1752Second half of 18th Century Advances in farming (crop rotation, agricultural machinery and selective livestock breeding) see a move towards enclosures across Finchampstead and the virtual elimination of small landowners1780s John Walter found The Times newspaper in 1785 and his family had a close connection to Finchampstead. Bearwood Estate provided respite from the hustle of London. He built the Bearwood Mansion, now a school, and extended the estate to the east as far as Yateley through the purchase of the East Court Manor, owned by Charles Fyshe Palmer.1860s John Walter the Second provided funds to build the village school and the road across The Ridges, now owned and preserved by the National Trustlate 1800s John Walter the Third, then editor of The Times, forced to seek funds to help keep his paper in competition against the newly launched penny papers on Fleet Street (Daily Mail and the Daily Telegraph) and decides to sell Bearwood Estate1887 Challenge of supplying Army with remounts during wartime is recognised. At the time there were two remount depots, one in Woolwich and one in Dublin1891 Arborfeld selected as a location for remount depot. Responsibility of manning depots transferred to the Army Service CorpsCirca 1900 1904 Land in Arborfeld acquired by the War Offce for the Arborfeld Remount Depot. Land was part of the Bearwood Estate, which was owned by the Walter Family of the Times Newspaper. Land is frst rented from Walter family and then purchased.1904 The site included 200 acres and was worked by three farms: Biggs Farm, Old Biggs Farm, and Elliss Farm. Garrisons Headquarters are built on the largest of the three farms, Biggs Farm. Site begins with only a handful of sheds.Circa 1912 1914 Acreage increases beyond the eastern boundary. Temporary stabling is constructed to accommodate more than 600 horses. Several thousand animals passed through the Depot during World War I.Circa 19301937 Remount Depot closes. Site now covers 500 acres. In the years it was open, nearly 100,000 horses pass through the depot. The Depot was on the largest employers in the local area.1938 Reopens as Arborfeld Garrison1939 Army Technical School opens and Poperinghe Barracks is built to accommodate two Heavy Anti-Aircraft Regiments of the Royal Artillery.1942 Garrison becomes home to the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers of the British Army (REME)1944 - 1946 Garrison serves as a medical centre and accommodation for troops before the Normandy Landings and those off to service in northwest Europe.
