Delay to the preparation of the West Berkshire Local Plan Review
The Government announced changes to the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) on 20 July 2021 without notice. These changes have significant implications for the West Berkshire Local Plan Review to 2037. The Council has sought independent legal advice and it is clear that additional work will be needed to support the new requirements contained within the NPPF. Consequently, there will be a delay to the preparation of the LPR.
Further details about the delay can be found in a press release that was issued on 18 August 2021.
