A temporary car park could be built on open space in Green Park, South Reading, as part of development plans for the area.

St Edward Homes has applied for planning permission to temporarily turn the land near Flagstaff Road into a 150-space car park for construction use.

The developer wants to turn the land into a car park for up to three years, with access from Flagstaff Road.

St Edwards Homes says the proposals would not require any intrusive ground work and the site would be restored to its original condition once the development work is complete.

The car parking spaces would be for contractor vehicles only, with access to the car park from 6am to 6pm.

The current car park is at land which will become residential blocks and so the move to a new location will allow the development of hundreds of new homes in Green Park Village to continue.

A train station for the new village is expected to open later this year, while a new primary school opened last September.
