The review of our Neighbourhood Plan is now well underway. This review will keep our Plan current, ensure that it accords with developing planning policy and can continue to shape village development in line with residents’ wishes.
The review of our Plan will help us to promote the most suitable sites for new development while working hard to maintain our village’s character and preserve our cherished landscape.
Sonning Common is required to put forward additional sites, which are potentially suitable for new housing development, to meet the district’s housing targets. This is on top of those sites already allocated in the existing Neighbourhood Plan, which was adopted in late 2016. Although the district’s new Local Plan has yet to be agreed, we expect the number of additional new homes required to be around 100.
