Newbury Town Council’s application to renew the Faraday Road Football Ground as an Asset of Community Value (ACV) was approved by West Berkshire Council on the 20th of September.


West Berkshire Council withdraws its Faraday Road planning application to “demolish the ‘former’ clubhouse, create additional car parking on the site and to enable the temporary opening of the sports and recreation space whilst redevelopment plans were drawn up” and is to open temporary public sports and recreation space at the site by the end of the year.
