Welcome to the Campaign to Protect Rural Wokingham. After discovering that Green Belt land at Ruscombe had been proposed for a 3500 home development, which is being seriously considered by WBC, we launched the campaign at public meetings and on Facebook with overwhelming local support and the backing of the Campaign to Protect Rural England. Since then we’ve been working to build our legal case against the Green Belt development, while broadening the campaign to promote the Forward Plan for Wokingham – a new resident-centred approach which would build the homes that are needed without exacerbating the traffic problems or destroying the character of the area. Please explore the information on this site, and check out how you can get involved. We hope that you will join us.
