The SADPD proposal will affect all of us for years to come. Bracknell Forest Council have given us until Monday 12th March 2012 to make comments on their proposals. Act now and complete the forms on their web site as they will almost certainly ignore any other form of submission.
A brief summary is given below, but go online at http://consult.bracknell-forest.gov.uk/portal/planning/siteallocations/draftsubmission and complete the forms.
Site Allocations Development Plan Document Draft Submission
Consultation on Draft Submission: Site Allocations Development Plan Document
Monday 16 January until Monday 27 February 2012
Various supporting documents are also available, including Questions and Answers Document, an MS Word version of the ‘Response Form‘ and a Response Form Guidance Note. These are available under the ‘Supporting Documents’ tab below.
You can access the full document by clicking on the long blue rectangle below – ‘Read document and comment on document’. You can then add comments against a section or policy. Please note, it is not necessary to comment against all sections/policies unless you wish to.
The Site Allocations Development Plan Document (SADPD) will allocate sites to accommodate growth in Bracknell Forest during the period up to 2026. Whilst the main driver of the SADPD is housing, it also considers sites for supporting infrastructure, employment and retail uses amongst other issues.
At this stage comments are sought on whether the SADPD is legally compliant or sound. To be sound the document must pass the following tests:
These issues will be looked at when the document is examined by a Planning Inspector.
Comments should therefore explain in what way(s) the SADPD is considered to be unsound and what change(s) would need to be made to make it sound. Further information on soundness can be found in the Response Form Guidance Note below or by clicking here. If you would rather email or post your comments to the Council please download the Response Form by clicking here.
The consultation on the Council’s Draft Submission follows consultation on the SADPD Preferred Option Document which ran from Friday 8th November 2010 to Monday 17th January 2011. You can view the Council’s response to the comments that were received on the Preferred Option by clicking here.
