The public exhibition will be held at Whitegrove Youth and Community Centre, County Lane, Warfield, tomorrow (Thursday), 4-8pm, and on Saturday, noon-4pm.

In accordance with Bracknell Forest Council's policy framework Berkeley is proposing to build about 750 of the 2,200 homes identified in the council's Site Allocations Local Plan (SALP) on land east and west of West End Lane. They hope to submit an outline planning application towards the end of the year following consultation events.

Andrew Saunders Davies, Berkeley Homes Oxford and Chiltern chairman said: "Our vision is to create a distinctive, high quality, new community at Warfield. Our proposal includes a new primary school and community hub.

"This is very much the start of the process of Berkeley working with the Warfield community.

"We think it is important that developers listen to what local people think. We find that listening to local residents at an early stage and working in partnership with the community improves the quality of our proposals for all. This is why we are asking local people about their views now."
