Founded over 30 years ago, Binfield Village Protection Society now has over two hundred members. Our objectives are
These objectives remain as important today as they were in 1975 when we launched our first campaign.
Over the years our campaigns have ranged from stopping a large gravel extraction site in the village through to a lengthy battle, with others, to stop a huge M4 motorway services station being built in countryside in the north of the Parish. More recently we have fought against a monstrous four storey block of apartments proposed for the village centre and, on behalf of our members, we have objected to many other wholly inappropriate developments planned for our village. .
Bracknell Forest Borough Council’s proposal for Site Allocations in the Parish (SADPD) provides perhaps our biggest challenge to date
We do not object to all new development in and around Binfield. As a resident you will have seen many high quality and very welcome new developments in the village over recent years. These we always support.
Over the past thirty years Binfield, like many other small settlements in the rural South East of England, has seen a significant increase in its size and population. Development has come through both large and small housing estates and the replacement of individual houses with multiple units.
Additionally, the Southern part of the parish has seen large scale commercial development, most, if not all, related to 'high tech' industry.
Local residents have always had the opportunity to comment on proposals for development, either directly to Bracknell Forest Borough Council or through Binfield Parish Council.
