Neighbourhood Plan


The Draft Neighbourhood Plan and its appendices were agreed by the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group in February and endorsed, with some amendments, by the Parish Council at their meeting in March.
The statutory 8 week public consultation on the Draft Plan ran from May 10th until July 2nd. This involved ensuring that businesses, organisations and landowners in the parish, together with more than 20 public bodies, and of course all of our residents, had the opportunity to view the documents and provide their comments, and included two online question and answer sessions. Thank you to everyone who provided comments or attended the Q&As.
The next step is to review all comments received and to agree any necessary amendments to the draft and appendices with the Parish Council. A final version of the Plan and appendices will then be sent to Wiltshire Council for examination, together with two other documents, one detailing the consultations which have supported their preparation and another showing that the policies in the Plan are consistent with national and Wiltshire council planning policies and neighbourhood planning legislation. If Wiltshire Council are happy with the documents they will then be examined by an independent inspector and when he or she approves them, a referendum on the Plan will be held in the parish by Wiltshire Council. Providing there is a simple majority in favour of the Neighbourhood Plan, it will be adopted by Wiltshire Council and must then be considered in any planning decision which affects the parish.
