Work is underway on an updated local plan which will shape the future of Wokingham Borough. This updated local plan will guide development in the Borough for the next 20 years.
We know we have to plan for more housing. We also need to plan for the new employment, schools, roads, parks, shops and community facilities necessary to create places people want to live, work and do business.
One of the key reasons for needing the Local Plan Update is that the Government has changed the way that we plan for development, particularly for new housing. It is the responsibility of individual local authorities to assess how much development is needed in its area and how much should be provided.
