Draft Bracknell Forest Local Plan Consultation

Consultation on the Land Availability Assessment Methodology, results and Site Selection Methodology
Consultation on the final draft methodology and results of the Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA), together with a draft Site Selection Methodology ran from Monday 21 November 2016 until 5pm on Monday 19 December 2016 and is now closed.
Inclusion of a site in the SHELAA does not mean it will be allocated for development, and does not mean the council considers it is appropriate for development either now or in the future. Allocating sites for development is done through the Local Plan process, which will allocate the most appropriate sites to meet development needs.
See the consultation portal for further information on the documents which formed part of the consultation.
Issues and options consultation
The Local Plan Issues and Options consultation ran from Monday 13 June to 11pm on Monday 25 July 2016.
The Issues and Options consultation did not include specific sites. However, in the autumn of 2016, the council published a list of potential development sites put forward. These are set out in a document called a Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA). This includes a high level assessment of the development potential of sites for housing and other uses.
The Local Plan Issues and Options document and supporting material including a summary leaflet, short and extended questionnaires, can be viewed on the consultation portal.
