Reading CAAC was founded in 2016. It is a voluntary group independent of but endorsed by Reading Borough Council (RBC). The aims of the committee are to promote the preservation and enhancement of Reading’s heritage particularly but not limited to the protection and good management of Conservation Areas. It works with RBC and other heritage groups to achieve its objectives.
We have a busy programme of objectives for 2022 including finalising our review of the Christchurch Conservation Area appraisal and pressing ahead with the Eldon Square Conservation Area appraisal review. We comment regularly on planning applications and Reading Borough Council consultations affecting Reading’s heritage and planning.
We are not a subscription membership organisation and none of the committee receive any remuneration for their time or effort.
Past and present committee members have come from a variety of backgrounds. Some members have professional heritage, conservation or architectural experience but all have an an interest in Reading’s historic environment.
We are particular keen to hear from potential members who live or work in the far east, west, north and south of Reading who would be able to take a lead in representing the community on heritage matters in those areas.
