The Central and Eastern Berkshire Authorities are now conducting a Regulation 19 Proposed Submission Consultation. The Consultation document (see below) sets the Proposed Submission version of the plan and invites representations to be made on it, under Regulation 19 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 (as amended).
The Central and Eastern Berkshire Authorities are therefore inviting representations on the 'soundness' (please see the accompanying Frequently Asked Questions for definitions on 'soundness') and legal compliance of the Proposed Submission document and its accompanying material. Responses to the Plan must refer to these tests otherwise they may not be considered by the Secretary of State.
The Proposed Submission document, the Sustainability Appraisal (incorporating Strategic Environmental Assessment) (SA/SEA) Environmental Report, Habitats Regulation Appropriate Assessment, Strategic Flood Risk Assessment and other supporting documentation, along with a response (representations) form and a survey questionnaire are all available to view and download from the Joint Minerals & Waste Plan consultation website. Representations and other relevant documentation will be compiled and submitted to the Secretary of State for examination by an independent Planning Inspector.
Consultation on the Proposed Submission plan will run for six weeks, beginning on 3 September 2020 and ending 15 October 2020. All representations must be received by 5pm on Thursday 15 October 2020. Late representations may not be accepted as duly made.
The preferred response method is via the dedicated consultation response form and survey questionnaire which can be found by visiting the consultation website. Responses will also be accepted via email by sending to: email@example.com or in writing to:

To comply with Government guidance and regulations during the current Covid-19 pandemic (or other public health emergency), it is not possible to consult on planning policy documents using usual methods. This is because of the requirements to minimise travel, social distancing and the closure of certain Council facilities. As the council offices at Shute End remain closed to the public, documents are only available online. Anyone able to access the consultation documents online should contact the council by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org to consider alternative arrangements.
