Local Planning Applications and Planning Enforcement


Wokingham Borough Council, as the Planning Authority has a statutory duty to consult Earley Town Council on all planning applications in our area and 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:



Planning applications can be viewed on Wokingham Borough Council’s website at: https://planning.wokingham.gov.uk/FastWebPL/welcome.asp


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:- [email protected] or by post to: Planning Department, Wokingham Borough Council, Shute End, Wokingham, Berkshire, RG40 1WR.


Earley Town Council asks that any comments made to WBC on a planning application are also copied to us at: [email protected], so that our Planning Committee when deciding its own comments are aware of any representations made to the Borough Council by local residents.


Residents can also report concerns to WBC about unauthorised development such as development taking place without planning permission, non-compliance with planning conditions, unauthorised work to protected trees etc via their website at: https://our.wokingham.gov.uk/services/pcbr/


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:



Wokingham Borough Council also has guidance on how to view and use the planning applications and planning constraints maps.  Please see WBC’s guide.
