Wokingham Borough Council is consulting on a Draft Joint Minerals and Waste Plan which will guide minerals and waste decision making in the borough up to 2036. The plan will guide future locations for sand and gravel extraction as well as waste management, such as recycling plants, biomass production and waste treatment facilities.
The Council is working in partnership with Bracknell Forest Council, Reading Borough Council and The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.
The purpose of this consultation is to discuss the long- term management of minerals and waste decision making. It is also an opportunity to gather more local evidence to determine the plan policies and site allocations.
