Founded in May 2010, the Northern Arc Action Group strives to protect the communities in Binfield, Warfield, and Winkfield situated in the Northern Arc of Bracknell, Berkshire, from saturation development.
Our groups aim is for Fair Housing Now, which means small sensitive developments in keeping with the character of the area, and of benefit to the community. Developments that don’t destroy well used local facilities, or beautiful countryside and forest areas, that are rich in wildlife in the process.
