Next Meeting of Greenham Parish Council
Wednesday April 8th 2015

7.30 pm at St Mary’s Church Hall, Greenham

Greenham Common Control Tower
Greenham Control Tower

Following our successful bid for the control tower we have completed the legal process to convey the building and some surrounding land into our ownership.

The first of two planning applications has been submitted for listed building consent and has been approved subject to conditions which must be met prior to works commencing. In the meantime work has started on those aspects of the project that do not require planning consent. For details of our plans and the permission we have, please follow the link below:

Greenham: Parish of many contrasts

Stretching from the River Kennet to the Enborne River and including the famous Greenham Common with its outstanding views, the Parish - on the southern edge of Newbury - is fast becoming a major residential area and centre for leisure, business and shopping.

From humble origins as a small priory and home to veterans of the Crusades, Greenham expanded in the late 19th century. St Mary’s Parish Church was established in 1876 and its members play an active part in the community.

The Common was requisitioned during World War 2 as an airbase and continued as such for the RAF and USAF, culminating in the arrival of the American Cruise missiles in the 1980s. Demonstrations, mainly by women, against nuclear weapons, occurred following their deployment.

In 1997 the airbase was purchased by Greenham Common Trust and restored to common land in April 2000. Around 750 acres of common land was sold back to West Berkshire Council and the remaining 150 acres was developed into a sustainable business park called New Greenham Park, which employs around 1,500 people.  Greenham Common Trust owns and manages the business park and funds generated from this are distributed back into the local community through several streams of grants funding. It has given over £12.5m in charitable grant aid since 1997 to local good causes. West Berkshire Council owns and manages the common.

On the outskirts of the Parish there is a thriving retail outlet housing many well known stores. Mill Hall (formerly Greenham Lodge, a Primary School for the Deaf) and the Hilton Hotel can be hired for functions. Newbury Racecourse, created in 1905, also provides a useful conference venue, nursery school and golf range. Crookham private golf club was established in 1873.

The Council meets monthly on the second Wednesday of the month at 7.30pm in St Mary's Church Hall, Greenham. Parishioners and interested groups are encouraged to attend and express their views on local matters.


There are Byelaws covering activities on Stroud Green, Greenham & Crookham Commons.
