Bracknell Forest Council, Reading Borough Council, the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and Wokingham Borough Council (collectively referred to as the Central and Eastern Berkshire Authorities) are working in partnership to produce a Joint Minerals and Waste Plan.
This will build upon the formerly adopted minerals and waste plans for the Berkshire area, eventually providing replacement policies based on up to date evidence of the need for minerals and waste facilities.
The Central and Eastern Berkshire Authorities are now publishing the version of the plan that is intended to submit to Government for examination by an independent Planning Inspector. This is known as the Proposed Submission version of the plan (Regulation 19).
The consultation runs for 6 weeks from 3 September 2020 to 15 October 2020.
All representations must be received by 5pm on 15 October 2020 and be based on legal compliance and/or ‘soundness’ as set out in paragraph 35 of the National Planning Policy Framework.
They will be compiled and sent to the appointed Planning Inspector.
You can view the Proposed Submission document and supporting material, together with more information on how to comment, on the Hampshire County Council website.
