Protest over 900 homes for Calcot

Protest over 900 homes for Calcot

Hundreds of objectors packed a school hall on Friday night to protest against plans to build a new housing estate on open ground in Calcot.

Politicians of all three main parties put their differences aside to attend the meeting organised by the Save Calcot campaign at Little Heath School to oppose plans to build on Pincents Hill.

This followed a political spat when the Conservative ward councillors organised a public meeting earlier this month which Save Calcot campaigners saw as “childish tactics”.

However Tories, Liberal Democrats and Labour party representatives all took to the stage pledging their support for the campaign against the Blue Living scheme to build up to 900 houses on former Calcot Golf Course land to the north and east of Sainsbury’s.

Liberal Democrat and parish council chair Jean Gardner pledged that development of the parish council’s recreation ground next to the site “was not an option”.
