Consultation process

Regard needs to be given to the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 (as amended) and the Council’s Statement of Community Involvement (February 2014). Consultation will be undertaken in collaboration with Reading Borough Council, the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and Wokingham Borough Council. The Council will seek to use a range of methods of communication having regard to public health guidelines on social distancing at the time of the consultation. These will include setting up an online consultation event (including notification to those on the local plan database), updating information on the Council’s website, providing hard copies of information at locations around the borough (specific libraries, parish/town council offices and Time Square, if open to the public) and putting information on the Council’s social media pages (Facebook and Twitter).


• Neighbouring County, District and Borough Councils.
• Specific consultees (such as ‘duty to co-operate’ bodies and specific consultees, including Environment Agency, Natural England and Historic England).
• General consultees (including landowners, the minerals and waste industry and bodies which represent the interests of different groups).

Making Representations: In writing to the Director of Place, Planning & Regeneration

Financial Impact: The cost of preparing the Central and Eastern Berkshire Minerals and Waste Plan is being shared equally amongst the 4 commissioning authorities. An allocation is specifically made for the project within the Council’s budget.
