Appeal A of the development proposed is erection of 4 number four bedroom; 4 number threebedroom, and 2 number two bedroom houses and associated development includingrevised access, and provision of public footpath and retention and improvement of awildlife area and Appeal B of the development proposed is erection of: (i) Market housing: 4 number four bedroom;4 number three bedroom and 1 number two bedroom houses; (ii) Affordable housing:4 number three bedroom and 1 number two bedroom houses; (iii) associateddevelopment including revised access, and provision of public footpath, and(iv) retention and improvement of a wildlife area; both have been dismissed.

The main issues common to both cases are:

a) the effect of the proposals on the character and appearance of the area;

b) the effect of reducing the physical separation between Tokers Green and Reading on the character and identity of Tokers Green;

c) whether future occupiers of the proposed development would have safe access to services and facilities by transport modes other than the private car; and

d) whether, having regard to my findings on the above issues, the presumption in favour of sustainable development set out within the National Planning Policy Framework (the Framework) and any benefits arising from the proposed development, there are material considerations sufficient to outweigh any conflict with the Council’s distribution strategy for housing.
