What is the Wiltshire Local Plan

A local plan forms part of the development plan for the future of the local area, drawn up by the local planning authority in consultation with the community.  By law, all planning applications for new development must be determined in accordance with the development plan unless material circumstances indicate otherwise.

Wiltshire Council has to maintain up-to-date plans to support growth, so there is enough land for homes, jobs and the infrastructure necessary to support them. Having an up-to-date plan helps protect against speculative and unplanned development that might undermine sustainable and resilient communities.

The Wiltshire Local Plan currently comprises a number of documents which in combination plan for the future development of the local area. They are the Wiltshire Core Strategy, the Chippenham Site Allocations Plan and various mineral and waste plans.

Made neighbourhood plans are also part of the development plan but not part of the local plan.
