West Berkshire Local Plan Review to 2036

Planning policies for development in West Berkshire to 2036

Our current Local Plan sets out our planning policies up to 2026. We have now begun a review of our Local Plan to cover the period up to 2036.

Scope and content of the Local Plan Review

We propose that the review will look at our future levels of need for new homes, employment and other land uses up to 2036. It will also consider what our associated infrastructure needs will be. We have set this out in our pdf icon Local Plan Review Scoping Report [290kb].

Sustainability Appraisal

We have also prepared a pdf icon Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report [4Mb]to accompany the Local Plan Review. This makes sure that sustainability issues are considered during the preparation of the Review, and sets out our sustainability objectives. 


We would like your views on what you think our Local Plan Review should cover. You can give us your views on the Scoping Report and the Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report, via our Consultation Portal, until 5pm on Monday 26 March 2018.

Alternatively, you can complete the following representation forms and return them to the Planning Policy Team.
