Consultation - Housing Site Allocation Plan
A consultation has begun on changes to the Housing Site Allocation Plan
A consultation has begun on some proposed changes to West Berkshire Council's plan outlining where homes in the district will be built in future.
Last year West Berkshire Council consulted on and subsequently approved a document, known as a Housing Site Allocation Plan, to help deliver the housing needed in the coming years. The plan sets out the preferred sites for development and prevents developers trying to build houses in the wrong locations and without any infrastructure.
Since being approved by the council, the Housing Site Allocation Plan has been examined by an Independent Planning Inspector. He has recommended that a further consultation be carried out on 56 specific changes and this was agreed at the West Berks Full Council Meeting held on the 8th December 2016.
"West Berkshire Council is determined to be a planning-led authority and not allow developers to bully communities into building houses in the wrong locations and without any infrastructure. By having this document we can demonstrate that we have a vision for providing much-needed new housing and a plan for delivering it."
The consultation begins on Monday 12 December and runs until 5pm on Monday 30 January, and you can have your say on the consultation through the Consultation Portal.
