Notice of Regulation 14 Pre-submission Consultation and Publicity on the Draft Melksham Neighbourhood Plan
Melksham Town Council and Melksham Without Parish Council consulted on a draft Neighbourhood Plan for a period of 8 weeks between:
Monday 1st June - Monday 27th July - The consultation is now closed.
Melksham Town Council and Melksham Without Parish Council have prepared a draft Neighbourhood Plan for the Melksham Neighbourhood Area. The Plan proposes a number of planning policies which, once adopted, must be used in the determination of planning applications within the Parishes.
In accordance with The Neighbourhood Plan (General) Regulations 2012, Melksham Town Council and Melksham Without Parish Council are required to publicise the draft Neighbourhood Plan and invite comments.
The Draft Neighbourhood Plan and supporting documents can be downloaded from the links at the bottom of this page.
The decision to proceed with this consultation was carefully considered given the current situation with Covid-19. Though we are currently not able to hold public events or have hard copies of the draft Plan available in public locations, people were invited to call or email with any questions or for support to access the plan and/or the comments form.
With the publication of the Melksham Independent News w/c 22nd June, which is delivered free of charge to 13,500 homes and businesses in the Plan area, the consultation was extended by 2 weeks to Monday 27th July to ensure that everyone had a chance to respond.
We had hoped that through July there would be the opportunity to hold some public drop-is sessions if the lockdown measures eased. Unfortunately this has not been possible.
