Neighbourhood Plan Referendum

The Potterne Neighbourhood Plan has been produced under the 2011 Localism Act and covers the entire Parish of Potterne.

The Plan seeks to reflect the residents' aspirations for, and concerns over, development within the Parish, while maintaining strict accord with the Wiltshire Core Strategy and the National Planning Policy Framework. The Plan seeks therefore to allow but control the expansion of the village itself, while strictly limiting development elsewhere in the Parish, in order to protect the distinctive nature of the village and its surroundings.

This plan was given final approval by Potterne Parish Council (as qualifying body) for formal submission to Wiltshire Council on 10th July 2015. Wiltshire Council is invited to place this plan on public consultation for the statutory period required by the Localism Act 2011.

The Plan was examined by Andrew Ashcroft BA (Hons) MA DipMS MRTPI between March and June 2016. Mr Ashcroft issued his report on 23rd June 2016, recommending that subject to some recommended modifications to wording and site allocations the Potterne Neighbourhood Plan be put to referendum under the terms of the Localism Act 2011.

Wiltshire Council has subsequently accepted the report and the recommended modifications to policies, and has agreed amended wording for site allocations with Potterne Parish Council.

Potterne Parish Council has subsequently approved the issue of this revision of the Plan.

All the recommended modifications are included in this issue of the Neighbourhood Plan now issued for Referendum.
