Highworth Neighbourhood Plan 2 (NHP2)


The Regulation 14 draft Neighbourhood  Plan (NHP) for the Parish of Highworth in Swindon Borough was prepared under the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations (2012) by Highworth Town Council following extensive community engagement. This document incorporates updated and new policies for Highworth, Sevenhampton and Hampton. 

The Regulation 14 consultation for neighbourhood planning regulations, requires the draft neighbourhood plan proposal to be the subject of a pre-submission consultation before it is submitted to the local authority for independent examination.

Neighbourhood planning gives communities the power to prepare a shared development vision for their area.  This neighbourhood plan seeks to shape, direct and help to deliver sustainable development by influencing the planning policies and decisions made by Swindon Borough Council.
