Local Plan Update

Thank you to all of you who took the time to give us your views in the Local Plan Update Homes for the Future consultation.

Wokingham Borough has to accommodate some 750 to 850 homes per year between now and 2036, so we’re putting together a plan - the Local Plan Update - for where these should be built, and where they shouldn’t, as well as what infrastructure and facilities need to accompany them.

Hundreds of you came to our engagement sessions this winter to find out about the challenges we face and the land put forward by landowners for potential development which we must consider. And hundreds took part in the online consultation and businesses have also given us feedback. All of this, along with technical evidence on key issues, is now being studied to produce the draft Local Plan.

Executive View

Cllr Stuart Munro, Executive Member for Business, Economic Development and Strategic Planning

“There will be a further public consultation on the draft Local Plan later this year. This is crucial because it’s your opportunity to comment on whether the choices we make are the right ones; both the areas we choose to allocate for building plus the schools, transport improvements, community and leisure facilities that go with them.”
