Westbury Neighbourhood Plan
Neighbourhood Plans empower local people to set local policies to protect their valued heritage, green spaces and community facilities and plan for local housing, employment and community facilities.
The Neighbourhood Plan team have worked very hard to listen to everyone’s views and build strong local evidence to support effective policies to ensure our town future development happens in the right places and delivers the things our current and future community needs.
Our Neighbourhood Plan will make a difference by focusing on things that the planning system can genuinely influence. On approval the Neighbourhood Plan will provide local planning policies for the town and become a part of the Development Plan that Wiltshire Council must use when determining planning applications in Westbury.
If you have any questions at all, please get in touch via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, via phone on 01373 822232 or by writing to Westbury Town Council Neighbourhood Plan, The Laverton, Bratton Road, Westbury Wiltshire, BA13 3EN.
