Reading garden centre plans to downsize to make way for homes

Plans to demolish part of Woodcote Garden Centre to make way for nine houses have been recommended for approval by the parish council.

Michael Hill, who owns the business off Reading Road, is seeking planning permission to demolish greenhouses and other nursery buildings on a 2,426 sq.m. plot to make way for three detached, two semi-detached and four terraced homes. The garden centre would continue trading from smaller premises.

The parish council supports the scheme in principle as the site is earmarked for nine dwellings in Woodcote’s neighbourhood plan, which passed a referendum two years ago.
