Find out more about what the Local Plan is and how we use it as part of the overall Development Plan for West Berkshire
The West Berkshire Local Plan is made up of several key documents, which we've explained below:
Core Strategy Development Plan Document (DPD)
The Core Strategy is a development plan document which sets out our overall planning strategy to 2026. It explains our vision for the area, and how it will be delivered. It also provides a framework for more detailed policies which will be contained in future development plan documents prepared as part of the Local Plan.

It also allocates sites for Gypsies, Travellers and Travelling Showpeople, sets out residential parking standards and policies to guide housing development in the countryside.
