Parish Profile


Situated to the west of Reading, Tilehurst Parish extends from the A4 in the south to a few metres short of the A329 in the north.  The Reading boundary forms the eastern border while its western border follows the line of the Sulham escarpment. 


The present Tilehurst Parish was created on the extension of the Reading Borough boundary in 1919. Tilehurst Parish Council became responsible for the rural area of the old Tilehurst and, with the remainder being within the Reading Borough area, it became known as Tilehurst Without.  It now serves a population of 15,500 and covers an area of 11 square miles.


The Council manages four recreation grounds and three village halls. The Parish’s Sports Centre and two further pieces of land are leased to West Berkshire District Council to meet Education and Social Service needs in the local area.   


West Berkshire Neighbourhood Wardens


Tilehurst Parish Council, in association with West Berkshire Council, Sovereign Housing Association and other local Parish Councils, helps fund the Neighbourhood Wardens, whose main aim is to provide a highly visible presence and to act as a focal point for the community.  They deal with issues which affect quality of life, such as antisocial behaviour, environmental issues (abandoned vehicles, fly-tipping, graffiti) and neighbourhood nuisance problems (noise, dog fouling).

They act as the 'eyes' and 'ears' of the community, maintaining contact with vulnerable residents and developing a strong sense of community spirit.

The Neighbourhood Wardens are there to offer help with a wide range of problems and if they cannot help, they will assist you in finding a solution.  Please call them on 0118 945 5286 about any problems in your community, or contact them on westberks.wardens@sovereign.org.uk

To see the Wardens' monthly reports please go to the West Berkshire Council website below - by holding down the control button and clicking on the link.
