2022 Update and Review of the Neighbourhood Plan
Much has happened since November 2016, and it’s important that the Plan stays up-to-date and relevant. We are therefore undertaking a refresh and review of the Warminster Neighbourhood Plan.
Updating the Neighbourhood Plan provides a significant opportunity for local people to update their ‘shared vision’ for the future development in the area. The issues the Plan can cover can be anything from local housing, good design in new development, green spaces and biodiversity, community facilities, local heritage, town centre regeneration and local employment.
2023 Warminster Neighbourhood Plan Review – March/April Informal Consultation
Over the last year, local volunteers have been working on collecting information and evidence to update the current Warminster Neighbourhood Plan. As this document is specifically related to the planning policies for Warminster, it will help shape the future vision and development of the town.
During March and April 2023, the local community were invited to contribute by providing their thoughts and feedback on the draft Neighbourhood Plan and the data collected. In addition to an overview survey there were also a range of topic specific surveys conducted regarding community facilities, local green spaces and the town centre. More than 1,300 surveys were completed and the majority of responses received were supportive of the development plans. The data collected from this consultation will be taken into consideration when updating the draft plan.
