Salisbury City Council is preparing a Neighbourhood Development Plan that will help shape and guide future development in our city.
The neighbourhood plan will be prepared alongside other Wiltshire Council projects such as the Central Area Framework and the emerging Local Plan. Together, we hope to create a robust and attractive context within which Salisbury will grow and thrive.Neighbourhood planning gives communities the power to develop a shared vision for their area. The policies in the neighbourhood plan can have long-term impacts upon the future of Salisbury. The plan will add local detail to Wiltshire planning policies based on the priorities identified by the Salisbury community.
The Neighbourhood Plan is managed by a steering group composed of members of the Salisbury community and elected Salisbury City councillors. The steering group is supported by town planning consultants.
Neighbourhood Planning is based on consultation with the community. Throughout the 2-year preparation period, the steering group will be meeting with the wider community to understand what Salisbury needs. The consultation will start in May and June 2019 with a series of 6 consultation events. Once the Vision and aims of the plan have been established based on the consultation events, we will form individual working groups to deal with specific policy areas and identify the planning evidence we will need to support our policies.
