Local Planning Applications
Wokingham Borough Council, as the Planning Authority has a statutory duty to consult Earley Town Council on all planning applications in our area.
Wokingham Borough Council’s “Statement of Community Involvement” sets out the notification procedure for consulting neighbouring residents of a planning application which may affect them. This document can be found on Wokingham Borough Council’s website at:
Residents can comment on a planning application via Wokingham Borough Council’s website at:
Alternatively Wokingham Borough Council’s Planning Department can be contacted at:- firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to: Planning Department, Wokingham Borough Council, Shute End, Wokingham, Berkshire, RG40 1WR.
Earley Town Council asks that any comments made to Wokingham Borough Council on a planning application are also copied to us at: email@example.com, so that our Planning Committee when deciding its own comments are aware of any representations made to the Borough Council by our residents.
Wokingham Borough Council do not send paper copies of planning applications to Earley Town Council, therefore planning applications can be viewed on Wokingham Borough Council’s website at: https://planning.wokingham.gov.uk/FastWebPL/welcome.asp
However, if you do not have access to a computer, planning applications can be viewed at Wokingham Borough Council’s Shute End Offices or alternatively an appointment can be made with us at the Town Council by contacting Tel: 0118 986 8895.
Wokingham Borough Council has added further information to planning pages on their website aimed at residents considering an extension and residents who are concerned about a neighbour’s planning application. The information can be found at:
