Shaping the next 10 Years for Reading

Mark Worringham, Planning Policy Team Leader Reading Borough Council

We are delighted to welcome Mark Worringham, Planning Policy Team Leader- to the Business Hour in January

Reading published its new Local Plan in Autumn 2019 following over two years of consultation with stakeholders. The new document is now the planning framework for our town through to 2036, and will be key to shaping Reading’s future.

Come and hear from senior planning policy officer Mark Worringham who will be unlocking some of the ideas contained in the Plan. Where are the major development sites? how many tall buildings will we have? how will we preserve our heritage? Join us to find out the answers plus a whole lot more!
