The Readings redevelopment

We are redeveloping a garage site in The Readings in order to build new affordable properties.

The Readings

What is the work?

We are building three new properties:

  • two 2 bedroom bungalows located behind 49 to 52 The Readings
  • one 2 bedroom house attached to 53 The Readings

We will also:

  • improve access through to the Bowls Club service area and car parking area
  • divert two drains to ensure access following the construction of the new homes

Why is the work needed?

The work will regenerate one of our underutilised garage areas and build new much needed affordable homes for local residents. 

The development includes a new 2 bedroom family home and two fully adaptable bungalows, which will benefit local residents.



Planning public consultation was carried out via letters and display at the Latton Bush Centre during December 2017.

Planning permission was granted on 22 August 2018 (HW/FUL/18/00088).

We have appointed Architecture & Design Services Ltd as the architect and Atkins Ltd (Faithful & Gould) as the consultant.

Impact on residents

We do not expect the on-site work to cause any issues to the surrounding residents and we will update them regularly.

The areas of concern we are aware of are access to the site through The Readings and car parking.

We will manage deliveries to mitigate any construction site car parking.
