Our Neighbourhood Plan: What You Think Matters
Thank you for taking the time to complete our survey. The survey closed on 28th February.
Our Neighbourhood Plan is taking shape as a draft document and we are finalising our evidence collection for our planning policies.
Your views continue to be vital – so you’ll be hearing more from us!
Our neighbourhood plan must be in ‘general conformity’ i.e. can’t go against the Government national planning policy or the Wiltshire Council Local Plan for the area. The current local plan, called the Wiltshire Core Strategy, was adopted in 2015 and Wiltshire Council are consulting on their new local plan now and the first-round closes on March 9th.

The local plan determines where and how development takes place and sets out priorities for the communities of Wiltshire. It’s important that ideas from the neighbourhood plan are put forward for the local plan review.
We have a growing evidence base linked to housing need and possible sites for housing, as well as information about green spaces and local character.
