Wiltshire Council’s Cabinet, on 20 June, approved the draft Wiltshire Housing Site Allocations Plan for consultation to commence in July.
The draft Wiltshire Housing Site Allocations Plan, a formal Development Plan Document, has been prepared in accordance with the Wiltshire Core Strategy. It will allocate new sites for housing and amend, where necessary, settlement boundaries at the Principal Settlements of Salisbury and Trowbridge, Market Towns, Local Service Centres and Large Villages.
Although the consultation will not start until Friday 14 July 2017 (and continue for 10 weeks) the Council are seeking to raise awareness through the Area Board network of the consultation period and drop in events being held as part of the consultation.
The drop-in events will be open between 12 noon and 7pm as follows:
- Neeld Community & Art Centre, High Street, Chippenham SN15 3ER -Monday 17 July 2017
- Guildhall, Market Place, Salisbury SP1 1JH – Wednesday 19 July 2017
- Town Hall, St Johns Street, Devizes SN10 1BN – Monday 24 July 2017
- Atrium, County Hall, Trowbridge BA14 8JN – Wednesday 26 July 2017
Officers from the Council will be available during the day to answer questions about the draft Plan and we would encourage people to attend to find out more about what the draft Plan proposes in their area.
From the start of consultation on Friday 14 July, the draft Plan and the supporting evidence will be available during normal opening hours at the Council’s main offices (Monkton Park, Chippenham; Bourne Hill, Salisbury; and County Hall, Trowbridge) and in all Wiltshire Council libraries. It will also be available on the Council’s web site via this link:
Information about how to comment on the draft Plan will be circulated via the area board networks closer to this time.
