As part of the Local Plan Update process, we need to understand what land is available for new housing, business and leisure development, and other uses. A number of sites across the Borough have been suggested to us to be consider for development.
A list of all submitted sites and a series of maps showing their location are available for you to view below. These are for information purposes only at this stage, with no analysis or assessment of the sites.
It should be noted that many of the sites suggested may not be suitable, available or able to be delivered and therefore a site being put forward is no guarantee that it will be allocated through the local plan process.
The information shows the location and size of the site and what use the site promoter has suggested it for. The use of the site therefore may be subject to change following assessment. It should be noted that in some cases the land owner/promoter has not suggested a land use at all and in such instances these sites will be considered for a number of uses at the time they are assessed.
Note - the site list and maps will be regularly updated.
A list of the submitted sites can be found in the document below
The interactive map can be found using the link below.
Note - Some of the sites submitted to us extend beyond the Borough boundaries with neighbouring Local Planning Authorities. In such instances, we will work with the other relevant Local Planning Authorities when making an assessment of a site.
All land suggested through the Call for Sites consultations will be assessed for their suitability, availability and achievability for development. At the Preferred Option Consultation stage we will consult on the proposed strategy for managing development, including those sites which are proposed to be allocated as part of this. The assessments of all sites will be available at this time.
The next stage of the plan, the Preferred Options Consultation, is now likely to take place this summer (2018).
At the Proposed Submission stage, the Council will undertake a consultation on the sites it proposes to allocate as part of the Local Plan Update, subject to future Executive approval.

If you would like to promote a site to the Council for development, please contact the Growth and Delivery Team to request a sites form by emailing us at LPU@wokingham.gov.uk. Please note, if your site is submitted after 31 May 2018 it will not be assessed and considered through the Preferred Options Consultation stage.
