Update on Local Plan Review Regulation 19 Consultation

West Berkshire District Council are pleased to confirm that the statutory Regulation 19 Consultation will start on Friday 20 January and last for six weeks. The Local Plan Review 2022-2039 Proposed Submission document (LPR), along with a vast majority of the evidence base has already been published on the Council’s website and all documentation along with the consultation portal will be available on 20 January. (Some documents are subject to dating which will happen by 20 January). Early release of the LPR allows stakeholders time to review it, along with the vast numbers of supporting documents, ahead of the formal consultation starting.

There has been extensive consultation on the LPR to get to this point (since 2019). If no significant changes are proposed in response to the Regulation 19 consultation (any significant changes will be automatically sent back to the Council for consideration), the Plan will be sent to the Planning Inspectorate for review.

Members of the public are invited to make representations on the LPR by submitting their response on the Council’s Local Plan Consultation Portal http://consult.westberks.gov.uk/portal (opens in new window)

Representations can also be submitted by downloading a representation form from West Berkshire Council’s website and returning it by post or email.
