About the Ward
The ward is north and north-east of the commercial centre of the suburb of Caversham, namely its Thames and Caversham wards. It covers all of Emmer Green including wholly residential and smaller 'Caversham Park Village' which is not marked on many maps. It includes a small proportion of Caversham proper, which was until the early 20th century the parish of (and had the main amenities of) Emmer Green. They have some interdependence to this day, such as in education, voluntary and sporting organisations, small shops and supermarkets. The proportion of socially rented housing has consistently been lower than the borough average in the 2001 and 2011 censuses and is mentioned in the Emmer Green and Caversham articles.
