There are two important consultations about the future of our area currently underway: Wiltshire Council’s Local Plan Review and the Marlborough Area Neighbourhood Plan.
The Local Plan is a strategic document and looks not only at Marlborough, but the whole county. Its proposals are largely in sympathy with the Neighbourhood Plan and both teams have worked together.
The draft Neighbourhood Plan which covers Marlborough, Manton, Mildenhall and Savernake has been drawn up through listening to the concerns of local people over the last 4 years (on the need for affordable housing, more car parking space, protecting our natural and historic environment, etc.), backing them up with evidence and setting out policies on how to address them.
Please give your views on both consultations – these plans will make a difference to our area up to 2036.
Marlborough ARea Neighbourhood Plan CONSULTATION
This consultation runs between 18 January and 8 March
The Marlborough Area Neighbourhood Plan is at a more advanced stage of development than the local plan.
The Steering Group is now inviting comments ahead of the final stages of development and consultation which will lead to a public referendum later in the year to decide whether to adopt the plan.
