We have received an invitation to a public exhibition on Wednesday 25 January between 3:00-8:00pm at Shaw House from David Wilson Homes to view and comment on their proposed residential development at Hutton Close.

“As a resident, neighbour or regular visitor to Shaw, we warmly invite you to view an exhibition showcasing the design proposals for residential development for the land at Hutton Close.

David Wilson Homes wants to engage with people that have an interest in the development throughout the planning process. At this early stage, we would like to invite you to this public exhibition to view and consider our early thoughts on the development proposals and for you to tell us what you think we have got right, and anything you think we might have missed.

We would like to work in partnership with West Berkshire District Council and residents in shaping our proposals.”


We have queried with both our local councillors and the CEO of West Berks about the potential increase in the volume of traffic along Shaw Road, Shaw Hill and Kiln Road already very busy roads leading to and from the Robin Hood roundabout.

Hutton close is very old and somewhat odd housing stock although generally well maintained and I believe well loved. Probably about due for replacement though?

We live in a 16th century house - old is somewhat relative. I guess it depends on what housing they put in its place and what effect that will have on traffic in the area which is already heavy with HGVs travelling to and from the A34/A339/A4 towards Hermitage and the bus services.

Interesting issue, local traffic. Although Newbury has and is growing massively, we still have the 1960s layout. For instance, the Council has consistently. In this area, the failure to properly upgrade Love Lane and its junctions as a strategic route will now start to hurt. Hutton Close is now well overdue for an upgrade. Newbury is no longer a small market town surrounded by a few villages; it's a large town with extensive suburbs.

Not long before Thatcham becomes just a suburb of Newbury. It's already becoming difficult to know where one finishes and the other one starts.
