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.

Do you look after, or help to look after a loved one or friend?

Illness, disability, old age; there are many reasons why three in five of us will look after a loved one and become carers at some point in our lives. Becoming a carer can affect personal finances, social life, education and employment, and general health and well-being. Who cares? We do.

Carer Support Wiltshire is a local charity which can help you access the information and support you might need.  We also offer one to one and group support, carer cafes, complementary therapy sessions and breaks from your caring role.

So whether you’re caring full time, for a few days a week, or juggling work with looking after someone, don’t struggle on your own. Contact us on 0800 181 4118 or visit our website at www.carersupportwiltshire.co.uk

A further consultation on completion of the Neighbourhood Plan will be arranged for you to comment on before it is presented to Wiltshire Council.Once again thank you for your continued support on the Neighbourhood Plan.

Community Engagement Consultation

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT CONSULTATION: ‘Possible Neighbourhood Plan Sites’ is now running from March 8th to   March 29th 2018.

  Full Regulation 14 consultation lasting 6 weeks will take place later this summer. However, the community has this additional opportunity now to comment on site options  in the community engagement now being held. Sessions will be held at North Bradley Baptist Church on Friday 16 March  5.30 – 7.30 p.m   and Saturday 17 March  10.00 – 12.00 a.m  &  2.30- 4.30 p.m.

The deadline for questionnaire responses is 29th March; however, we may be able to accept late response up until 5th April.     Responses can be made in person at the events being held (see this above for details), via e-mail or letter (ideally using response forms available from the parish clerk) or direct to the parish clerk at: or by post to 12 Churchlands, North Bradley BA14 0TD

 It has not been decided whether sites will be allocated at all.  However if any are, then they are likely to be aimed at meeting modest levels of growth for local needs only. The purpose of the report is to examine some possibilities and also to check to see if anyone wishes to suggest alternatives. Following community engagement on the report, the findings will go into the Neighbourhood Development Plan draft which will go out to formal consultation later in the summer.

Housing Needs Survey

Thank you to those of you who completed the Housing Needs survey. We need to provide robust evidence of housing need within the parish to counter the development proposals made by the local planning authority last summer.  We received the results of the survey in February.There was a good response of 34% of replies received.  The information you provided helped Wiltshire Council to compile the report which you can read by clicking on the following link.
