What do we do?

Planning takes up a large proportion of our time, tracking local applications and the development of strategic plans and policies. For more information: Planning

We work with other groups across Reading to try and address the deterioration in many of our Conservation Areas. For more information: Conservation Areas

With the advent of the new licensing laws, we became involved in reviewing licensing applications including those for large events such as Reading Festival. For more information: Licensing

We are represented on the Caversham Safer Neighbourhood Forum and work closely with the police and other agencies to reduce crime, vandalism and graffiti. For more information: Safer Caversham

We review traffic and transport changes and when appropriate attend, question and present to Reading BoroughCouncil's Traffic Management Sub Committee. For more information: Traffic and Transport

We seek to build a strong local network with other local residents’ associations and groups such as Caversham GLOBE, Friends of Caversham Court Gardens and Reading Civic Society. In 2012 CADRA joined the newly-formed Reading Neighbourhood Network (RNN), which is an umbrella organisation of residents and neighbourhood groups active across Reading.

We help to keep local people informed, particularly where they can influence local decisions.

We lead or share in special projects for Caversham. For more information: Special Projects

How do we work?

We resolutely avoid party political bias and work closely with Reading Councillors and Officers, other local groups, the Police, companies and individuals.

The elected committee meets monthly. To contact us see our contact details.
