The Neighbourhood Plan
This is the Winterbourne Parish Council Wiltshire local authority website, presenting local community, visitor and parish articles and news.
The endorsement from the Village

Following a public meeting on the 21 st March 2015 at the Glebe Hall at which the need for a Neighbourhood Plan (NP) was described and discussed, the residents of the village took the decision to go ahead with the task of producing a Neighbourhood Plan for the Winterbournes. The meeting also overwhelmingly voted that the Neighbourhood Plan should cover the entire Parish, so the Neighbourhood Plan boundary would be the same as the Parish boundary.


Land Availability

Local landowners have the opportunity to make land available for development by registering with the Wiltshire Council Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) - and a number of potential sites have been put forward. These sites do not have any endorsement at present and are largely outside of the current housing boundary. These sites will be evaluated carefully to enable the best possible solution for the village to be achieved.


Designation Granted - The Next Stage

The Winterbourne Neighbourhood Plan has now been granted designation with Wiltshire Council so the Steering Group will be able to start in earnest in formulating the Neighbourhood Plan and obtain professional advice to ensure that the Plan is an effective tool to determine the future development of The Winterbournes and preserve our beautiful surroundings. There is growing collaboration with neighbouring parishes and there will be a Public Meeting soon to seek further views from the community.


Questionnaire - August 2016

The Questionnaire had a good response rate and the data is proving very useful.
