A note from the Committee:
If you are considering moving to Emmbrook, congratulations! Emmbrook is a well established area with its own village feel whilst being within walking distance of a market town with all the usual shopping and recreational facilities – and easy rail links into London and Reading. Emmbrook has three great schools (and another recently opened in Jan 2023) taking your children through the whole of their school life, local shops for the essentials (with more to open over the next few months), three pubs, a sports ground run by volunteers with a wide range of sports for youngsters ….. we could go on.
If you have a question then we can help by either answering it ourselves or directing you to the person who can. Please get in touch (see contact details) if you need help. Wokingham Borough Council have also published documents for new development areas in Wokingham, including the development of c800 properties in Emmbrook Place. you can access this document here or via the WBC website.
Of course, if you do decide to move into Emmbrook, we would be delighted to have you as a member and joining is easy and inexpensive. Please see the membership page for details. Emmbrook is going through a challenging time at the moment, with new housing development adding more than 1000 dwellings to the area over the period 2016 – 2024 with at least a further c50 dwellings identified in latest Local Plan consultation. Whilst we will benefit from a new school, a new community hall, new shops and more parkland, we will also have to deal with the construction activity and increased traffic. As an Association we are VERY active in dealing with the Council and developers to get the best deal for residents. Join us and you will always be up to date with what is going on with this and many other local community issues!
