Local Plan Partial Update

We are currently consulting on a Partial Update to our Local Plan. Our Local Plan is the document that sets out the strategy for how development takes place in Reading, and is the main consideration in deciding planning applications.

The existing Local Plan was adopted in November 2019, and we are now carrying out this Partial Update to make sure that key parts of the plan are as up to date as possible and help us achieve the development that best meets our needs.

This consultation is on Scope and Content for the plan.  It does not yet include our draft updated wording, but instead it generally describes how we expect to change each policy.

Some of the main topics are explored using the links below. However, there are a much wider range of issues discussed in the document.
