Local Plan Review Public Consultation – Emerging Strategies

Swindon Borough Council will shortly be consulting on a range of alternative options for meeting the Borough’s housing and employment needs during the plan period to 2036.  Included within the reviewed Plan are also draft revised development management policies to guide decision making on planning applications submitted to the Council.

From Monday 29th July the documents can be viewed on our consultation portal which can accessed at: www.swindon.gov.uk/localplanreview.  Paper copies of the documents will also be available at SBC Reception, Wat Tyler House, Beckhampton Street and these libraries: Central Swindon, North Swindon, West Swindon, Highworth, Wroughton and Parks.

The consultation begins on Monday 29th July and continues for 8 weeks until 5pm Monday 23rd September.  We are seeking the views of residents and businesses in order to develop the Council’s preferred approach which will be set out in the final draft plan to be consulted on during winter 2019/20.

Comments should be submitted using the on-line consultation portal available from the website above. Comments can also be sent by e-mail to forwardplanning@swindon.gov.uk or by post to Planning Policy, Swindon Borough Council, Wat Tyler House, Euclid Street, Swindon, SN1 2JH but should respond to the questions posed by the Local Plan Emerging Strategies Summary Report.
