Corsham Neighbourhood Plan Update – Referendum to be held on Thursday 14 November 2019

We are delighted to say that the Independent Examiner’s Report recommends that the draft Corsham Neighbourhood Plan proceeds to referendum (subject to a number of amendments). Wiltshire Council has drawn up a schedule of modifications to be actioned and published a Decision Statement. The date of the Referendum is Thursday 14 November 2019. All registered electors of Corsham parish are eligible to vote and polling cards will be issued by Wiltshire Council. If more than 50% of those voting, vote in favour of the Plan, it will be adopted and become formal Planning Policy. It will then be used by the Town Council and Wiltshire Council when making recommendations and decisions about planning applications. It will also be an important guide to anybody wishing to develop in Corsham.
