Keen followers of the Burghfield Neighbourhood Development Plan will have noted that we have had to pause our formal committee meetings due to the Covid-19 restrictions. However that hasn’t stopped the Committee from continuing to progress the draft document.
In fact the use of technology has allowed us to meet more frequently; with shorter meetings of the Draft Plan sub-group taking place most weeks. We have been documenting the current status of planning and development within the parish and analysing and recording the feedback provided by you in responses to our questionnaire and elsewhere.
We are grateful to the West Berkshire planning team who have been able to provide assistance and support where the analysis has thrown up additional questions. The combined information has been used as the basis of draft policies that we hope will be incorporated into the final plan.The document drafting and refining will continue until we can incorporate the proposed housing numbers for Burghfield when the West Berkshire Local Plan is released this year.
