Redwood was delighted to be at this week’s meeting of Reading Borough Council’s Planning Applications Committee, to see long-standing client Hermes Investment Management secure unanimous approval for its planning application to rejuvenate the St Martin’s Centre, in Caversham.

St Martin's Caversham

The application, which was recommended for approval by Officers, will now enable valuable new investment to take place. The consented works will add to the vibrancy and vitality of the existing precinct, and to the Village Centre as a whole, creating an improved shopping and leisure environment, with a cinema, along with 40 new apartments and approximately 70 full-time jobs.

Redwood has provided communications and stakeholder management support from pre-submission through to and following determination, coordinating coverage on the BBC, ITV, Estates Gazette and in the local media.
