The Current Local Plan
Having a Local Plan ensures that we have the necessary housing, land and infrastructure in place to meet the changing needs of our population for future years. It helps us to meet the district's housing targets and to make sure that houses are built in the most appropriate places. It also helps to address other important issues including protection for the environment, conservation and supporting our towns and villages to thrive.
The Local Plan is prepared by West Berkshire Council in consultation with local communities. It's currently in the process of being reviewed to cover the period until 2039. Throughout this process we will be asking residents to have their say to help us shape how the district develops for current and future generations.
