As the Wokingham Borough Conservatives manifesto promised, we have bold and ambitious plans to achieve our aim for a 70% recycling rate by 2030. It’s part of our wider plan to tackle the climate emergency and make our borough carbon neutral by 2030.
Dinton Pastures' new multi-million pound activity centre reached a major milestone on Thursday 28 and Friday 29 January, as modules were lifted into place at the borough’s first net zero carbon building. The centre is set to open its doors to visitors in late spring.
Wokingham Borough residnts are set to benefit from investment into football facilities at Cantley Park, after Wokingham Borough Council successfully bid for a £616,619 grant from the Premier League, The FA, and the government’s Football Foundation.
Our residents continue to show strong support for recycling as much, and in as many ways, as they can. Our food waste recycling services continue to grow in popularity with residents, helping drive up the borough’s recycling rate. We continue to look to improve our recycling service as we aim to hit our goal of a 70 per cent recycling rate in the borough to help make Wokingham carbon neutral by 2030.”
We are now turning plans on paper into a spectacular facility for the final part of the Wokingham town centre regeneration scheme. The complex will offer fantastic facilities and is a result of many years of consultation with residents and businesses around the types of leisure and community amenities they would like to see locally.
