2018-02-21 Wokingham BC - Land Supply Update

We have received an update from John Kaiser, the Wokingham Borough Councillor for Barkham, on WBC's land supply, as follows: 

"The council now believe they have a land supply which is equal to 6.80 years which will allow them to defend against unsuitable and unsustainable planning applications from opportunistic developers. The important numbers are over 1000 homes built April - November 2017 and over 1400 houses at various stages of construction in the borough." 

The implication of this is that WBC should be better able to fight and win appeals by developers for building in unapproved and unsuitable locations, as this exceeds the 5 year rolling land supply which is required..

Kind Regards
