Housing Site Allocations Plan UPDATE

This is due to go before Cabinet members of Wiltshire Council on Tuesday 3rd July before going to full Council on Tuesday 10th July. 

As you will know, the community have been working to create a neighbourhood plan for the village. This neighbourhood plan would, for the first time, mean that local residents and not officers at Wiltshire Council, would decide where any new houses go and, crucially, how many there would be.


However, officers at Wiltshire Council intend at its meeting on 3rd July, to persuade county councillors to ignore all our hard work and instead press ahead with imposing their Housing Site Allocations Plan (HSAP) on us. This will at a stroke destroy hundreds of hours of volunteer work and waste thousands of pounds of public money in terms of grant aid.

Please contact the following to raise your objection to the HSAP’s destruction of both YOUR neighbourhood plan and Greenfields.
