WILTSHIRE LOCAL PLAN REVIEW
22nd February 2021
We would like to thank again everyone who responded to our consultation last September/November 2020. We are using your responses to aid us in our reply to the current Wiltshire Local Plan Review public consultation which finishes on 9th March 2021. Our Neighbourhood Plan requires conformity with the emerging Local Plan for it to progress and be adopted and become part of the overall plan for our town. Residents and business owners are encouraged to submit your views to this consultation and can do so via Wiltshire Council website
EXCELLENT RESPONSE RECEIVED TO PUBLIC CONSULTATION
1st December 2020
The public consultation process for Royal Wootton Bassett Neighbourhood Plan finished on 23rd November 2020. A total of 760 responses were received, which is an excellent response from residents and others who work in the town or visit it. This confirms how much the community care about the future of the town and have a view of how it should develop over the next few years.
The survey covered all aspects of the town including future housing needs, infrastructure and employment requirements, green spaces, desired leisure, retail and health facilities and the way the town should evolve. This will help ensure the needs of the town are met during the plan period up until 2036. Many of those that responded expressed their views in helpful detail.
The next step is to analyse the responses which will establish the main views and concerns of the local community, so the process of putting the new plan together can start. At that stage, those who expressed an interest in helping prepare the Neighbourhood Plan will be invited to further assist in its compilation. The local community will continue to be engaged and consulted on throughout the process, to ensure the developing plan reflects the type of town the community want. This will culminate in residents being able to vote on adoption of the plan at referendum.
