Publication of the Western Berkshire Housing Market Area Strategic Planning Framework
Bracknell Forest is located within the Western Berkshire Housing Market Area, along with Reading Council, West Berkshire Council and Wokingham Council. The Strategic Planning Framework is a non statutory document that the 4 authorities along with the Local Economic Partnership - Thames Valley Berkshire - have developed.
The document identifies the strategic opportunities that exist in the market area, which could help to meet housing and other needs over the next 20 years. It aims to demonstrate cooperation between the authorities and to meet the development needs of the area. The document does not allocate any land for development; this will be done through the individual local plans that each of the authorities is developing.
The document was published by the 4 authorities on 13 December 2016 and outlines the areas where further joint work will be explored.
