Planning Matters

Sonning Parish Council, as a consulter, receives copies of planning applications submitted to Wokingham Borough Council that relate to Sonning and some from adjoining Parishes where the development is close to the Sonning boundary. Applications are allocated to one or more Councillors on the Planning Committee, who visit the site and discuss the proposal with neighbours. Recommendations and observations are brought to Planning Committee meetings.
