People across Wokingham Borough are being asked their views on the Draft Community Vision as part of our journey towards creating a plan that reflects the hopes, aspirations, and priorities of residents across the borough.

The Draft Community Vision has been developed by partners from a range of organisations through extensive engagement with residents, stakeholders and local groups over the past several months. Once finalised it will represent a shared commitment to building a thriving, inclusive and sustainable community where everyone has the opportunity to flourish.

During the six-week consultation period, which will run until Friday 28 June, residents of Wokingham Borough are invited to have their say on the draft vision and help shape the future of our community. This is an opportunity for individuals from all walks of life to share their thoughts, ideas, and priorities for the borough's growth and development.

While the consultation will primarily take place online through a dedicated website, there are multiple ways for residents to participate and provide their feedback:

  1. Online Survey: Residents can complete the online survey available on Engage Wokingham Borough, the council's consultation platform, providing their views on various aspects of the Community Vision.
  2. Drop-in Sessions at libraries: A series of drop-in sessions will be held at the following libraries: 
  • Wokingham, Thursday 23 May, 10am to 12 noon
  • Finchampstead, Friday 7 June, 10am to 12 noon
  • Woodley, Saturday 15 June, 10am to 12 noon
  • Twyford, Friday 21 June, 2pm to 5pm

These will provide residents with the opportunity to learn more about the vision, ask questions, and share their feedback in person.

An Easy Read copy of the vision will also be made available online and in print at libraries.

"We are thrilled to launch this consultation on the draft vision and invite residents to join us in shaping the future of our community," said Nick Fellows, Chair of the Community Vision Steering Committee. "Your input is invaluable in ensuring that the vision reflects the needs, aspirations, and priorities of our diverse community."

Residents are encouraged to visit the consultation website to learn more about the Community Vision, access the online survey, and find information on upcoming events and opportunities to participate.

Together, let's build a brighter future for Wokingham Borough!
