West Berkshire District Council has announced that it is reviewing its Local Plan to cover the period up to 2037 

The Local Plan Review will identify the development that is required to meet the local area’s needs, set out a strategy for distributing development within the district, and outline the Council’s policies for conserving and enhancing the natural and built environment. The overall aim is to aid West Berkshire in achieving sustainable development.

West Berkshire District Council is are still at an early stage in the plan-making process and have produced an emerging draft version of their Local Plan Review. They believe it is important to understand what their key stakeholders think of the draft plan at this stage, so are inviting comment. 

The deadline for submitting a response is Friday 5 February 2021.
