Corsham Neighbourhood Plan out for consultation


A six-week consultation on the draft Corsham Neighbourhood Plan started on the 1st November 2017 and continues until 13 December 2017. This is an important opportunity for our community to shape and influence development and redevelopment that will take place in the Corsham area over the next ten to fifteen years, ensuring that it is appropriate to our needs and aspirations.

Details are available on the Neighbourhood Plan website at

‘Our Neighbourhood Plan is reaching the crucial final stages before adoption by Wiltshire Council in the autumn of 2018. The remaining stages in the process are:
•A six week period of consultation with the local community and statutory consultees
•Finalising the Plan to take account of the responses received during the consultation period
•Submitting the revised Plan to Wiltshire Council who then carry out a further six-week consultation with the wider community and statutory consultees
•Examination of the Plan by an independent examiner
•A community referendum – all voters on the electoral register in the Plan area are able to vote on the adoption of the Plan
•If more than 50% of voters support the Plan, Wiltshire Council will formally adopt it
•Once adopted, developers will be required to take account of the objectives and policies set out in our Plan
