The sub-groups outlined below have been formed to carry out research and produce policies to feed into the neighbourhood plan under the auspices of the lead identified. For a more detailed look at the remit of each sub-group, look at the Phase Two Proposal Document in the document repository.
We need more volunteers to help take this work forward. Please consider joining one of these sub-groups and lend a hand to this valuable work.
Housing And Development
Lead by Graham Cockarill
This group should look at the requirements to ensure that future development is of an appropriate type, size, density and quality that contributes to the community’s needs. It should incorporate the need for more starter homes and affordable property, the requirement for development to be properly supported by infrastructure, and should also address the community’s desire to protect the strategic gaps between communities and preserve historic buildings and views.
Lead by Paul Simpson and Luke Buckland
This group should look for opportunities within the Neighbourhood Plan to improve public and community transport, manage traffic flows and potential congestion more effectively, ensure our roads and pavements are kept in good condition and provide better parking for residents and businesses. Also look at improving cycle routes and pedestrian facilities.
Open Space And Wildlife

Protecting our open spaces, waterscapes and wildlife have been identified as priority areas. This group should propose policies that support these objectives, taking into account the local areas of special scientific interest and protection areas
Lead by Colin Ive
Supporting our objectives to ensure Yateley remains a healthy and happy place to live, this group should look to propose approaches to local leisure and youth activities, and also ensure that our plan discourages anti-social behavior and crime.
