New Local Plan for Bracknell Forest

Bracknell Forest Council is consulting on Issues and Options for a new local plan for Bracknell Forest.

The consultation runs from Monday 13th June until Monday 25th July 2016.

The Council is reviewing its planning policies so that they reflect the latest government policy and guidance. This includes how the amount of new housing we need should be calculated. Having up-to-date policies is important so that development doesn’t happen in a piecemeal way without any proper planning.

We are seeking your views on the:

  • Vision;
  • objectives;
  • range of issues to be covered, and
  • suggested approach.

Please note that no potential sites for development are included at this stage.

In the Autumn of 2016, the Council is hoping to publish a document called a Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) which will include a list of possible sites and a high level assessment of the development potential of those sites for housing and other uses.

For now, the following documents have been produced:

  • Issues and Options Document together with extended questionnaire
  • Leaflet including short questionnaire
  • Technical documents such as the Berkshire (including S Bucks) Strategic Housing Market Assessment.
