Finding out what you think
Finding out what people think of planning policies we write is a very important part of the planning process. It is so important in fact that we are now required to write a ‘Statement of Community Involvement’ which sets out all of the different methods we will use to consult you on various issues. Below are some of the areas of planning you will typically be asked to give your opinion on:
Development Plan Documents (DPDs)
These policies deal with planning issues on a large scale. As a result they have three stages of consultation:
Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs)
These planning policies support the bigger plans we make in DPDs by providing extra guidance on specific issues e.g. improving Wokingham Town Centre.
- SPDs have one round of consultation which lasts for 6 weeks.
Improvements and Developing New Communities
As the Council formulates plans to improve some areas of the Wokingham Borough and develop new communities, we will ask for your opinion on matters such as what places should look like and what sort of things you’d like in them. Consultations will be carried out in a number of ways including public workshops and responses posted on Facebook Groups.
