The Reading Built-up Area or Reading/Wokingham Urban Area is a name given by the Office for National Statistics to a conurbation in Berkshire, England, with a population of 318,014.[1] This was a significant decrease from the population according to the 2001 census of 369,804[2] due to Bracknell no longer being considered part of the built-up area, but forming part of the Greater London Urban Area instead.
