4. Joint Minerals and Waste Plan

The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead, Bracknell Forest Council, Reading Borough Council and Wokingham Borough Council (collectively referred to as the ‘Central & Eastern Berkshire Authorities’), are working in partnership to produce a Joint Minerals & Waste Plan which will guide minerals and waste decision-making in the Plan area for the period up to 2036.

The Joint Minerals & Waste Plan will build upon the formerly adopted minerals and waste plans for the Berkshire area, and improve and update the evidence base and strengthen the policies and provide details of strategic sites that are proposed to deliver the vision.
