New Draft West Berkshire Local Plan
West Berkshire Council are reviewing their Local Plan. This plan will, when approved by a government inspector, specify where major housing and employment developments should go. It will also specify policies to control planning applications. It will cover the years 2022 to 2037 but will have to be reviewed every five years under government rules.
The council has now produced a draft of the plan which was consulted on from December 11th 2020 to 5th February 2021.
The council is proposing a to allocate the following development sites in Theale:
The council is also proposing to allocate a major housing site of 2,500 homes on this side of Thatcham
All these sites were proposed for housing the last time the local plan was reviewed, but were rejected after consultation.
The consultation closed on 5th February 2021. My submission to the consultation can be viewed here.
The council is now considering the responses to the consultation and will modify the plan before submitting it to the Secretary of State. Another consultation will be carried out at that stage. This information is being left online in preparation for that consultation.
