Revised plans to build homes at a reservoir in Reading have been opened up for public comment.

Thames Water was told by the government inspector in January that it could not put 96 homes on Bath Road Reservoir.

The revised plans include up to 80 homes, and the Grade II-listed water tower would be turned into flats.

Some local people want to keep the brownfield site as a wildlife haven and say they are still concerned about the density of the housing being proposed.

But the water company said the reservoir could not be left vacant because it was unsafe.
