Winkfield Neighbourhood Area

Designation of Winkfield Neighbourhood Area

Winkfield Neighbourhood Area was designated by Bracknell Forest Council on 24 December 2015.

Winkfield Parish Council applied for the designation of a neighbourhood area in October 2015. A consultation on the proposal was held from 3 November to 15 December 2015.

SEA and HRA Screening Decision

In some circumstances neighbourhood plans may require environmental assessments in line with European obligations. These environmental assessments are a Strategic Environment Assessment (SEA) and a Habitats Regulation Assessment (HRA).

Winkfield Parish Council provided information on the scope of their neighbourhood plan to Bracknell Forest Council to determine whether a SEA or HRA is required. This is known as ‘screening’.

Bracknell Forest Council’s screening decision was subject to a consultation with Historic England, Natural England and the Environment Agency.

The screening decision concludes that the Winkfield Neighbourhood Plan requires an SEA and an Appropriate Assessment.
