    Wokingham Liberal Democrats would like to present their alternative views to the Wokingham Regeneration Scheme.

    • Provides a sustainable town centre in the long term
    • Captures as much business as possible for the local economy
    • Transferable to other towns in the Borough
    • Saves the green space at Elms Field
    • Keeps Wokingham's market town feel.
