The facebook page's launch follows the recent submission of a formal planning application for the scheme to West Berkshire Council, which will meet in September or October to discuss the plans.

Newbury Town Council is seeking permission to demolish the existing cafe building which houses a kiosk and a storeroom for park and boating equipment and replace it with a centre to offer indoor and outdoor seating areas, catering facilities, public toilets, changing room facilities and office and storage space.

The project is expected to cost in the region of £500,000. Of this, £250,000 will be provided by the Greenham Common Trust and the remainder through a public works loan.
