More news, no ads


West Berkshire Council has extended the deadline for the submission of consultation documents – Regulation 18 – in relation to its district's Local Plan.

The West Berkshire Local Review to 2037 includes two phases, Regulation 18 and Regulation 19.

The Local Plan Review will determine whether or not 2,500 homes will go to north east Thatcham.

The plans, once voted, are to be submitted to the secretary of state in early 2023.

The completion date of Regulation 18, public participation in the preparation of the DPD, has been extended from July of this year to December.

This leaves the next step, Regulation 19, the publication of the proposed submission documents, to see completion by March 2023.

Thatcham town councillors have in the past expressed concern with the lack of time given for them to respond to Regulation 18.

The absence of engagement with the public has also been commented on, in what has been described as a consultation built “on the back of social media surveys”.
