Wokingham Town Council is a Statutory Consultee for Planning Applications, Development Proposals and Transport issues arising within the boundaries of the town. The Town Council delegates responsibility for dealing with these matters to the Planning & Transportation (P&T) Committee. The P&T Committee is also responsible for the upkeep of some bus shelters and park benches in the town.


The P&T Committee studies all Consultations affecting the town.


The Planning & Transportation Committee meets once a month on a Tuesday evening during nine months of the year to consider planning applications and associated matters. Wokingham residents are welcome to attend these meetings and ask questions before Councillors decide on their recommendations.

The Committee considers planning applications that fall into the following categories:

  • Development within the Conservation Areas
  • Development within the curtilage of a Listed Building
  • Development where existing buildings are to be demolished and/or new buildings are to be erected
  • Development having a potential impact on road safety
  • Change of Use

The Town Council’s comments are submitted to Wokingham Borough Council, where a decision will be made by a Planning Officer under delegated authority, or at a meeting of the Borough Council’s Planning Committee.

Details of planning applications can be viewed on the Borough Council’s web site by searching for the application number or address.

The Planning Applications listed below will be considered at the next meeting of the Planning & Transportation Committee on Tuesday 14th March 2017. Click on the application number to view the plans.
