Local Plan Consultation begins next month






Local Plan consultation begins next month with in-person and online events

The consultation for the Wiltshire Local Plan begins on Wednesday 27 September, with in-person events being held across the county to enable you to find out more.
We are holding 16 drop-in events at libraries and leisure centres around Wiltshire and a live webinar-style event on Microsoft Teams. You can just turn up to the in-person events, but you will need to register beforehand for the online event.
If you cannot make your local in-person event, you are welcome to attend any of the others to discuss the plan and your own area – all events are open to all.
The Local Plan sets out the vision and framework for housing, infrastructure and land for employment growth for the next 15 years. Once adopted, all planning applications will be determined against the plan, making it the most important place-shaping document for Wiltshire.
The consultation begins on Wednesday 27 September and ends at 23:59 on Wednesday 22 November. To find out more about the events and to sign up for the online event, visit the Local Plan webpage.

Local stories in and around the Malmesbury area to keep you up-to-date.


A wonderful place to visit with a wealth of attractions right on the doorstep.


Malmesbury is a beautiful town to visit in its own right and attractions include the jewel in our crown being Malmesbury Abbey, the fabulous Abbey House Gardens, and Malmesbury’s 15th century Market Cross.

For more than two and a half millennia successive generations have populated this hilltop, which forms the centre of the community we now call Malmesbury.
