Decision by #WestBerks Council on which sites to be allocated for housing delayed

West Berkshire Council consulted on almost 40 sites as its"preferred options" for housing over the summer. The sites consulted included four sites in Theale:

Potential housing sites consulted on for Theale

It was scheduled to make the final decision on the sites to be allocated, after taking account of the consultation, at a Council meeting in December.

However, there were so many responses to the consultation that the decision has now been delayed.

There were some 8,500 individual comments from about 4,500 people. About 18,500 separate "points" were made in those comments. Only about half of the comments have been initially processed so far and work on investigating the individual points has not yet started.

Therefore  residents will not know for some time which sites around Theale will be allocated for housing.
