Local Plan Review: Latest Updates
Read the latest updates for our ongoing Local Plan Review
At a meeting of Full Council on 1 December 2022, the proposed submission (Regulation 19) version of the West Berkshire Local Plan Review 2022-2039 (LPR) and its supporting documents were presented to Councillors. Councillors agreed that these documents could be subject to public consultation. You can view the council papers here, and watch the Council meeting on YouTube.
The statutory Regulation 19 consultation took place between 4pm on Friday 20 January 2023 and 4.30pm on Friday 3 March 2023. The responses we received were published on our consultation portal on 23 March 2023 and can be viewed here.
In line with the timetable for the LPR (as set out in the Local Development Scheme), all responses will be submitted this spring to the Secretary of State, together with the submission LPR, supporting documentation and a summary of the main issues raised in the comments. A Planning Inspector will then be appointed to carry out an independent examination of the LPR.
