Informal 'Drop In' this Wednesday at Mapledurham Pavilion

Pavilion's access off Upper Woodcote Rd

Kier, the DfE’s contractor building The Heights School, will be holding an informal drop in session between 3 and 4.30 pm on Wednesday 14 August 2019 in the Pavilion at Mapledurham Playing Fields.

The purpose of the event is for residents to meet representatives from Kier who will have informal chats about the works in the car park and access road area. Plans will be on display of these and also of the school. Representatives from the DfE, Reading Borough Council (RBC) and Agripower (RBC’s contractors) will also be present. The car park works are part of the s106 works agreed between RBC and the DfE.

Any questions relating to the school’s Community Use Agreement will not be covered during this informal drop in session.

The works to the car park have been delayed because of birds nesting in the bushes and the need to carry out further sampling of the materials to the road. The sampling is standard practice before any materials leave a site to check that there is no contamination and will start w/c 5 August. The actual construction works will commence w/c 19 August.

Reading Borough Council has a page with updates about the all the works at Mapledurham Playing Fields. You may also wish to have a look at the FAQ.

I am unable to attend as will not be in the country until later that evening. If anyone wants to raise issues with me please email me:
