Wokingham Borough Council

Dear Ms Angela Pollock,

RE: Freedom of Information Request Ref No: 9395

Thank you for your recent communication,and please find below our response to your request.

1. Can you please confirm where if online and which newspaper(s) you advertise all your public notice, including planning TROS Path Diversion to name a few.
-Wokingham Borough Council use all local papers and depends on the situation, location and notice as to which paper(s) will be used. Wokingham paper is used as the main one for overall coverage of the borough, as it gets the most coverage, but we use local papers for a targeted approach. It depends on what the notice is and who needs to know in the borough. Eg Henley Herald if the notice would only effect/advise that area rather than the whole borough.

We are unable to go into any more detail at this time, as each notice will be different in how it is handled. If there are any specific notices and locations, then we can check and see if we can advise on how these were handled or would be handled.

2. If your TROS are available online and if not do you have a list of consultees
-Our Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) are available on our website at the following link:
