Last week, the News brought you a full list of what was being discussed at your local council for the coming week.

A lot happened in Bracknell and Wokingham last week – and both authorities are set for another busy few days.

Here are all the important issues being talked about this week.

Tuesday, June 25

No public meetings are planned for Monday this week but on Tuesday, Wokingham councillors will be talking about taxis.

Wokingham Borough Council’s (WBC) licensing and appeals committee will hear about the problems faced by taxi drivers in the borough.

Nearly 50 have signed a letter asking the council for more financial support after changes to licensing requirements last year meant costs for drivers went up.

If you would like to see how this unfolds, you can attend the meeting at 7pm at WBC’s offices, located at Shute End, Wokingham RG40 1BN.

Bracknell Forest Council’s (BFC) governance and audit committee meets on Wednesday to discuss how smoothly the council is running.

There’s also a report on the complaints received by BFC about borough, town and parish councillors in the last year.

Nine complaints were made in total from residents and employees, including grievances about ‘racist’ social media posts, a councillor using a disabled toilet causing a disabled young person to wait, and one councillor ‘standing in the road and shouting at the complainant’s wife about where she was parking’.

Councillors will also discuss the risks the council faces in the coming months and years, but this section of the meeting will be held in private.

If you want to go along to this meeting, it gets underway at 7.30pm at Bracknell Forest Council’s Time Square offices, located on Market Street, Bracknell, RG12 1JD.

Bracknell’s top scrutiny committee will meet on Thursday to hear about all the work its other scrutiny committees did over the last year before listening to a presentation from local police area commander superintendent Felicity Parker about crime in the borough.

This includes updated on crime such as domestic abuse, child exploitation, town centre anti-social behaviour and more.

The public can attend this meeting from 7.30pm at BFC’s offices (address above).

In Wokingham, the council’s decision-making team will vote on a number of issues, including whether to bring its adult social care services back under the control of the authority.

Its provisions are currently split between WBC and council-owned company Optalis but a review of the care saw the current setup deemed “inefficient”.

The move to bring social care back in-house could cost £600,000 over the next three years.

Councillors are also set to approve a six-week consultation on the draft Arborfield and Barkham neighbourhood plan, which will ask residents for their views on how development in the parishes should be managed.

Barkham residents have already seen councillors debate housing in the area after more than a thousand locals signed a petition demanding action to halt overdevelopment in the parish.

Two other consultations on public rights of way and the local industrial strategy are set to be given the green light too, after councillors from across parties ask the top team about pressing issues in the borough.

The executive meeting starts at 7.30pm and is held at WBC’s office (address above).
