https://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/planning-policy-local-plan-review-consultation

Wiltshire Council are undertaking a consultation to inform the preparation of the Wiltshire Local Plan Review, with the draft plan due to be completed towards the end of 2021. The topics covered include:

  • How growth (additional new homes and employment land) is distributed around the county (‘Emerging Spatial Strategy’ paper)
  • Levels of growth, potential locations for development and place shaping priorities for each of the county’s main settlements (documented in a series of ‘Planning for’ papers for each Market Town and Principal Settlement)
  • Improving the framework for rural communities to meet housing needs (‘Empowering Rural Communities’ paper)
  • The opportunity to inform proposals about how the council’s planning policies can be shaped to address climate change and biodiversity net gain (‘Addressing Climate Change and Biodiversity Net Gain through the Local Plan – raising the ambition’ paper)

Atworth Parish Council was invited to respond to the Empowering Rural Communities paper. A copy of the council’s response may be found here:

Our near neighbours Melksham Without Parish Council and Melksham Town Council also responded to the Market Town paper. Their response may be found here:
