Coronavirus: Whilst Planning Meetings are currently suspended due to the ongoing pandemic, Planning Committee members are now discussing Planning Applications via email, as they are a consultee body, not decision makers. Planning Applications can still be viewed on Wiltshire Council website.
Residents who may be effected or have concerns/issues on any live planning applications can contact their local Town Councillor, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with comments you wish the committee to consider. You can of course continue to submit your comments directly to Wiltshire Council. Check their website whether you can submit comments on-line or by emailing email@example.com
Please note the consultation expiry date for each application and submit your comments to the Town Council Planning Committee via above enquiries email, 10 days before the deadline for the Committee to consider. This gives the Committee sufficient time to review your comments and submit their response to Wiltshire Council by the consultation expiry deadline.

Councillor David Bowler
Chairman of Planning Committee
Royal Wootton Bassett is a very special place to live. It is also growing, the Town Council Planning Committee’s role is to keep a check on planning applications and to forward their recommendations or objections to Wiltshire Council. It is Wiltshire Council who make the final decision.
The Planning Committee meets in addition to a scheduled Council meeting, to discuss any plans that have been called in. A planning application is called in when Councillors have concerns about any negative effects the application may have on things such as road safety, neighbouring properties or the town in general. They may also call it in based on concerns of a constituent. People need homes and Royal Wootton Bassett has continued to provide its fair share of these with many new builds. The Planning Committee works hard to ensure that this does not become a free-for-all, overburdening our schools.
Agenda, minutes, decisions for Planning Meetings can be found on this website.
Residents can view planning applications by the link found on our home page, under Information & Services.
