The Central and Eastern Berkshire Minerals and Waste Plan

The Central and Eastern Berkshire Authorities (Bracknell Forest Council, Reading Borough Council, The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead and Wokingham Borough Council) are working in partnership to produce a Joint Minerals and Waste Plan which will guide minerals and waste decision making in the Plan area up until 2036.

Issues and options

The first stage in plan-preparation was the 'Issues and options' consultation. The purpose of this consultation was to engage the community in discussion on the ISSUES for managing minerals and waste for the next 20 years. It was also an opportunity to gather more evidence to inform the OPTIONS for the plan policies and site allocations. The consultation ran for six weeks, beginning 9 June 2017 and ending 21 July 2017.

Draft Joint Minerals and Waste Plan

The next stage was to draw up a draft version of the Minerals and Waste Plan. This was subject to consultation, which ran between the 6th August 2018 and 12th October 2018. The Draft Plan set the Vision and outlined the future level of minerals and waste provision required to deliver the Vision and meet national policy targets and objectives.  Proposed site allocations were also included in the Draft Plan.  A summary of the consultation responses received will be available in due course.  

The Draft Plan and supporting documents can be viewed online:
