   Binfield Neighbourhood Plan is submitted!    16 September, 2015

The Binfield Neighbourhood Plan has reached the next exciting milestone on it's journey to becoming "made" and part of local Planning Policy.

On Tuesday 15 September Binfield Parish Council approved the submission of the Binfield Neighbourhood Plan and supporting document to Bracknell Forest Council.  The Borough Council will now review the Plan and ready it for submission to an independent Examiner.  If the Plan is approved by the Examiner it will be put to public referendum where the people who reside in the Parish can vote on whether it should be come adopted or "made".

The journey started back in February 2011 when Binfield was designated as a Neighbourhood Plan area.  Since then, many individuals have worked long and hard to listen to the views of the community and shape those views into policies that can influence the planning decisions which are made affecting Binfield.

The Parish Council has formally recorded its thanks to the work of the Neighbourhood Planning Community Group, led by Borough Councillor Mrs Sarah Peacey, for their efforts in getting the Plan this far.
