Decision on sites to be allocated for housing in ‪‎Theale‬, ‎Calcot‬, ‎Tilehurst‬, ‎Purley‬ and ‪‎Pangbourne‬ delayed until autumn

West Berkshire Council today issued a press release about the allocation of housing sites that included the claim "West Berkshire Council is now able to set the timetable, as the process of analysing more than 8400 responses from members of the public on the first draft of the ‘Housing Site Allocation Development Plan Document’ is progressing well."
The reality is that the approval of which sites are to be selected for housing and submitted to a planning inspector has been delayed by at least nine months to the autumn.
The delay means that the affected communities will now be in limbo for months because they will not know if sites near them will be selected for housing.
