Future housing sites put forward

A host of possible sites for development in a Berkshire town have been put forward by residents.

Wokingham Council held a consultation earlier this year to discuss new housing for the next 20 years, including 6,000 new homes in Bracknell.

A total of 14 additional sites have been put forward and a further consultation will be held on those.

The council is taking views on the recommendations until 17 December and could alter original plans.

Interested parties also voiced views on altering boundaries for some proposed sites.

Councillor Gary Cowan, member for local and regional planning at Wokingham Borough Council, said: "We want to know what residents think about the suggested additional sites and changes to sites proposed in the core strategy.

"You do not need to resend or repeat the comments made during the original consultation as these are currently with the government's planning inspector."

The new responses will also form part of the independent inspector's assessment as to whether the plans should go ahead.
