The series of public consultations hosted by Berkeley is now finished, but another opportunity to talk to both developers and council officers will occur on 17th November when the Council will be holding a public meeting of the planning panel at Highlands School.  No decision will be made at this meeting (that will be taken by the planning committee in January) but the meeting is an opportunity for the public to ask questions of planning officers or the developers Berkeley Homes that could shape the proposals.
