Don’t miss the Caversham Park croquet showcase

Members will next week be able to study updated plans for the proposed new croquet lawns at Caversham Park.

Developers Beechcroft are staging a public exhibition of their latest proposals at the former BBC headquarters. 

The development includes tennis courts and bowls greens as well as croquet lawns — about which a Caversham CC sub-committee, led by Mike Kay, has been advising them ahead of our club’s possible move there some time in the future.

The exhibition will take place at the iconic former manor house on Thursday, December 8th, between 2pm and 8pm.

A Beechcroft spokesman said: “In response to the feedback arising from consultation on their current planning and listed building applications, Beechcroft have undertaken a significant refresh of their proposals in order to respond positively to the comments received by the local community, key stakeholders, statutory consultees and the local planning authority.”

Our chairman Charles Briggs has confirmed that he will take up the developers’ offer of a private meeting to guide us through the latest plans. He said: “We need to make sure we are fully briefed going forward.”

For those who can’t make it to the exhibition more information will be available on the company website and if you have any feedback is the email address to use.
