Councillor Steve Abbott, Chairman of Corsham Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group
‘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.
