Proposal made for area plan
4:00pm Friday 2nd November 2012 in News
Rural communities in the Royal Wootton Bassett and Cricklade community area are working together to create a neighbourhood plan.
A steering group has been set up to look at creating a plan for the parishes of Broad Town, Clyffe Pypard, Lydiard Millicent, Lydiard Tregoze, Lyneham & Bradenstoke, Purton and Tockenham.
Braydon and Marston Meysey have also been invited to join the process.
Those behind the North East Wiltshire Villages (NEW-V) neighbourhood plan must first submit an application to Wiltshire Council outlining the area covered.
Ray Thomas, of Purton Parish Council, who has been elected as chair of the steering group, said: “The decision to progress with the plan demonstrates the strong commitment of the steering group to prepare a plan which reflects the wishes of the local community.
“We are looking forward to consulting with local people and this is due to commence early in the new year.”
