Wokingham Borough Council has planned for 12,460 new homes across the Borough by 2026. These new homes are needed because of the strong local economy, population growth, the need for affordable housing, and the way households are changing.

In 2010 Wokingham Council published its Core Strategy. This highlighted the potential for development to the north of Wokingham and allocated ‘around’ 1,500 new homes with associated open space, transport and community infrastructure within the North Wokingham Strategic Development Location.

The masterplan for North Wokingham is based on growth of the two existing areas of Norreys and Emmbrook, extending them into two areas to be known as ‘Kentwood Farm’ to the east comprising phase 1 (currently under construction) and phase 2, and ‘Matthewsgreen’ to the west - phase 3.

Matthewsgreen is the third phase of the North Wokingham Strategic Development Location. It is a 34 hectare parcel of land located within Twyford Road to the east, Matthewsgreen Road to the south, Toutley Road to the west and Toutley Water Pumping Station and Toutley Industrial Estate to the north.
