Warfield Parish Council undertook a pre-submission (Regulation 14) consultation on the draft Warfield Neighbourhood Plan between 18 July 2017 and 8 September 2017.

3. Submission Consultation

The Warfield Neighbourhood Plan sets out objectives for the future of our parish and contains planning policies to guide the development and use of land in the Warfield Neighbourhood Area.  We submitted this plan to Bracknell Forest Council on 24 January 2019.

We held a 6-week public consultation on the proposed plan in line with Regulation 16 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended) between 10am on Tuesday 5 March and 5pm on Tuesday 16 April 2019.  The consultation has closed.
