Local Plan Update: Your questions answered
Proposals for new homes and communities with a wealth of supporting amenities in Wokingham borough have been explored at a public meeting which residents can now watch online.
Additional homes must be built to meet local need to 2038 as well as Government targets, so refusing to plan for them – or failing to meet those quotas – would just give developers control over the process.
All three areas considered were assessed for various impacts including air and environmental quality, biodiversity, climate change, the economy, local housing need and access to transport networks including scope for sustainable alternatives to driving.
All new housing will be served by new roads, schools, green spaces, sports facilities, community halls and more.
Those who couldn’t make the events or still have queries can speak to planning officers at one of several drop-in sessions at the council’s offices in Shute End, Wokingham, between 9.30am and 12 noon on 6, 11 and 20 January.
