Plan is Made

Posted May 30, 2024

The Chippenham Neighbourhood Plan was ‘made’ by Wiltshire Council on 29 May 2024. It now forms part of the Development Plan, and the policies in the Neighbourhood Plan can be given full weight when assessing planning applications that affect land in Chippenham Parish.

The Decision Statement from Wiltshire Council and the made Plan can be found under the ‘Plan Documents’ section of this website and follows an Independent Examination and a positive referendum result.

We would like to thank all residents, Councillors, officers and consultants involved in preparing and shaping the Plan.

Whilst this represents the successful conclusion of a five year process, it is also the start of an equally important new chapter – making sure that the Plan’s policies are effectively monitored and implemented. This is likely to be a task given to a new group formed specifically to report to the Town Council on progress.
