New housing plan deadline looms

Residents in a Berkshire borough are being reminded they have just a week left to lodge their views on a plan for housing over the next three years.

Wokingham Borough Council is currently holding a public consultation on its draft Housing Strategy for up to 2013.

The strategy includes issues such as accommodation for older people and the quality of housing and related support services in the borough.

Residents have until 18 November to make comments, the council said.

Councillor David Lee, leader of the council, said: "Wokingham Borough is generally considered a prosperous borough and one of the best places to live in the country.

"However, the success of the area does bring with it challenges including the fact that house prices are well above the national average leading to affordability issues for local people and key workers."
