Question submitted under Council Procedure Rule 9



In accordance with Council Procedure Rule 9 (Public Participation), a question has been submitted by Mr T Cox, resident of Central Sandhurst as set out below:


“I would like to petition the council to do a proper review of 5G technology before proceeding with any more installations (e.g. Ringmead). There has been little to no real life testing done on 5G technology. There is no demand as far as I know from speaking to my friends and residents here in Bracknell Forest. Does the council have any evidence at all of the demand for a new and unsafe technology?

This is a call for action as a matter of interest to the health and wellbeing of the community and would appreciate it being raised at the next meeting for action.”





Petition submitted under Council Procedure Rule 9



In accordance with Council Procedure Rule 9 (Public Participation), a petition has been submitted by Mr R Edwards, resident of Hanworth as set out below:


“The residents of Hanworth and Great Hollands are affected by increased road noise on A3095 and Nine Mile Ride. We are asking the council to provide a solution to unacceptable levels of vehicular noise which is affecting the amenity, wellbeing and health of local residents.


We urge the Council to work in partnership with the Police to find a solution, not limited to, but including reducing the speed to 40mph along Nine Mile Ride and having “Speed Average” cameras and other noise reducing measures and traffic calming on Nine Mile Ride and A3095”

Motions Submitted Under Council Procedure Rule 11

This Council believes local input to planning decisions is valued by residents and is of the utmost importance, and will continue to uphold the right of residents to make such representations in respect of planning decisions.



Motion 03/2021 moved by Councillor Temperton and seconded by Councillor Neil


The Council asks the Executive to look to provide a Community Home within Bracknell Forest for some of our Bracknell Forest children who are awaiting foster parents, to avoid sending them to live outside the borough.
