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?
Our newly updated Local Development Scheme shows more information on the timetable.
A number of formal consultations will take place throughout the MWLP (Minerals and Waste Local Plan.) 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.

A Draft Joint Minerals and Waste Plan was subject to consultation during the Summer 2018. The Draft Plan set the Vision and outlined the future level of minerals and waste provision required to deliver the Vision and meet national policy targets and objectives. Proposed site allocations were also included in the Draft Plan. A summary of the consultation responses is available on the Hampshire County Council website.
The Draft Plan, supporting documents and the Draft Plan Consultation Summary Report can be viewed on the Hampshire County Council website.
