Bracknell Forest has big plans for the future and this your chance to play a key part in delivering them.  We need for someone with the drive to shape and deliver great new communities in a great Borough. 

Bracknell Forest is a council that gets things done.  It bucked the trend of declining town centres with the opening of the successful Lexicon shopping centre in 2017.  We are now looking to develop further key sites around the town centre.  We also have major strategic housing sites under construction in the Borough, with more work needed to deliver the later phases along with the necessary infrastructure.  There are exciting new sites in the pipeline with a garden village and a mix of brownfield and greenfield sites proposed in the recently submitted Local Plan. 

So with lots happening there is real opportunity for the right person to make their mark in creating sustainable new communities that will be great to live and work in and help achieve our climate change objectives.

Because we're Bracknell Forest...
