The Parish Council have received the following letter from Slough Council. They are setting out their Local Plan to include meeting a housing shortage of between 5000 and 12000 homes which they say they cannot accommodate. Therefore they are proposing to encroach on South Bucks Greenbelt.
We have been invited to comment on these proposals. Your Parish Council would like to help you to understand this document and respond. Please come along to this meeting.
Dear Sir / Madam
Regulation 18: Review of the Slough Local Plan Issues and Options consultation 16th January to 27th February 2017
Slough Borough Council has produced an Issues and Options consultation document as part of the process of the Review of the Slough Local Plan. The Local Plan 2016-2036 will guide development in the borough for the next 20 years and create a place where people want to live, work, play and stay.
The document sets out the council’s current view of the major issues the new Local Plan will need to address, our thoughts on the policy responses to them, and a set of spatial options that could begin to deliver them. We would welcome your views on it.
We have produced the following documents that are also available for consultation:
· Sustainability Appraisal Draft Scoping Report (November 2016) RLP12
· Sustainability Appraisal of the Issues and Options (December 2016) RLP3
· Draft Habitat Regulations Assessment (January 2017) RLP13
The Issues and Options document and supporting documents are available to view online at www.slough.gov.uk/localplan from Monday 16th January 2017 for six weeks.
This consultation closes at 5pm on 27th February 2017.
To submit a response please complete the online form at www.slough.gov.uk/localplan ; email us at planningpolicy [Email address: planningpolicy #AT# slough.gov.uk - replace #AT# with @ ]; or write to us at St Martins Place, 51 Bath Road, Slough SL1 3UF.

The full document is long and in parts technical so the Council have also produced a short magazine and a leaflet; and are using social media to gain more information about people’s views:
· Copies of the magazine and leaflet are available online, at The Curve, Landmark Place and some community centres and libraries across the borough
