The Central & Eastern Berkshire Authorities (Bracknell Forest Council, Reading Borough Council, The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead and Wokingham Borough Council) are working in partnership to produce a Joint Minerals & Waste Plan which will guide minerals and waste decision making in the Plan area up until 2036.
The Joint Minerals & Waste Plan will build upon the formerly adopted minerals and waste plans for the Berkshire area, and improve, update and strengthen the policies and provide details of strategic sites that are proposed to deliver the vision.
The Central & Eastern Berkshire Authorities have decided to run a further ‘Call for Sites’ exercise. This means they are asking mineral and waste site operators and landowners to put forward site proposals for consideration for minerals and waste uses, including any aspirations for existing sites to either extend or widen the range of operations or facilities.
This further round of consultation is to seek nominations for additional land, which has not previously been submitted, to be considered for future minerals and waste operations in the Plan area going forward over the next 15 to 20 years.
To help us assess the sites, we require some essential background information about the site, including what the proposal is for, its location (including a map), and ownership information (including contact information). Additional information will then be sought through follow up communication.
The Call for Sites process will run from 9 October to 22 November 2019.

Additional Regulation 18 (Site Specific) Consultation July 2019
Recently, the Central & Eastern Berkshire Authorities invited feedback from statutory consultees, stakeholders, communities, local organisations and businesses on a specific site - Bray Quarry Extension and the associated assessments including Sustainability Appraisal (incorporating Strategic Environmental Assessment).
The Site Specific Consultation ran for six weeks, beginning 9 July 2019 and ending 19 August 2019.
The Site Specific consultation has now closed we are no longer accepting further comments. The responses are now being processed and a summary of the consultation's findings will be released soon, with the full responses (including names, but excluding addresses) to follow.
Work is also progressing on updating the Joint Minerals & Waste Plan and its evidence base.
Key documents from the Site Specific consultation:
All responses are currently being processed in accordance with our Privacy Notice.
Previous work on the Plan
The first stage in plan preparation was the Issues and Options consultation, conducted Summer 2017.
The second stage in plan-preparation was the Draft Plan consultation, conducted Summer 2018.
Following completion of the consultation, the results were analysed and included in the JCEB Draft Plan Consultation Summary Report. The report seeks to detail who responded, whether the policies and sites were considered sound and what amendments were proposed.
This summary of responses report is a guide for stakeholders and the Central & Eastern Berkshire Authorities to review the responses received. It will be used, together with the full responses and any further information collected or received, to prepare for the next consultation (the 'Proposed Submission consultation') which is scheduled to be carried out in 2019. The full responses are being published through the following document along with the names of the respondents. In line with Data Protection legislation and principles, personal addresses and any personally sensitive information has been redacted.
