Housing study finds that 665 new homes need to be built in ‎West Berks ‬each year.

The study, a Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA), looked at future needs across the whole of Berkshire and established the number of homes a year that will need to be built between now and 2036. It also proposed how those should be split across the six Berkshire councils.
The study was produced by the six Berkshire local authorities and the Thames Valley Berkshire Local Enterprise Partnership and is intended to help shape local discussions about how many houses should be built and where. The study also looked at the need for affordable housing and what housing is needed for specific groups such as older people and communities. All the information collated will help West Berkshire Council prepare a new Local Plan.
