Welcome to our consultation website for The Old Power Station, Vastern Road, Reading (formerly SSE).

The following pages present our updated proposals for the above site, which identify the significant changes made to design and layout further to comments received at the February 2019, May 2019 and October 2019 events and through dialogue with local residents and groups.

The Berkeley Group has also employed more than 850 apprentices on its sites and offices over the last 18 months and is creating 519 acres of public realm and planting 9,500 trees across London and the South of England.

Our homes and developments are designed not just for today, but for tomorrow and the future. They are designed to enhance the neighbourhoods in which they are located for.

Experts In Placemaking

Berkeley has unrivalled experience in regenerating complex sites to deliver beautiful developments that are tailored to their surroundings. Berkeley’s strong focus on placemaking is led by creating a real identity and unlocking public realm. It’s about creating strong communities where people from all walks of life can live comfortably together.

We believe the key to ‘placemaking’ is ensuring that it is delivered in true partnership with the parties involved and making decisions for the long-term. Collaboration is key to our success. It helps us create high quality places that go on to become thriving communities.
