New Minerals and Waste Local Plan
Work is underway on an updated Minerals and Waste Local Plan (MWLP) within Berkshire.
Wokingham Borough Council, Bracknell Forest Council, Reading Borough Council and the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead (collectively referred to as ‘Central and Eastern Berkshire Authorities’) are working together to produce a Joint Minerals and Waste Plan which will guide minerals and waste decision-making in the area.
The Joint Minerals and Waste Plan will build on previous minerals and waste plans for the Berkshire area. It will set out a new vision and replace the current policies and provide details of strategic sites that will deliver the vision.
What’s the timetable?
It is expected that the Joint Minerals and Waste Local Plan will be completed (‘adopted’) in winter 2020. Our Local Development Scheme (LDS) shows more information on the timetable.
A number of formal consultations will take place throughout the MWLP. The plan is being undertaken by Hampshire County Council on behalf of the Central and Eastern Berkshire Authorities and all consultations will be coordinated by them.
