The Examination into the West Berkshire Development Plan Document continues this week.
This week, the focus has been on debating the merits of specific proposals. Rebecca Davies, Planning Officer for the The North Wessex Downs AONB has been at the examaination. The AONB team has always maintained that too many houses are proposed within the protected la tndscape, with particular concerns over the site proposed for Salisbury Road, Hungerford.
The AONB continues to make the case for the landscape and to prevent developments that chip away at the edge of the AONB through the building of new houses that could be built elsewhere.
