To meet the target allocation, set by Wiltshire Council, the village needs to find sites to build a minimum of 26 additional new homes by 2038. The NDP Steering Group undertook a call for sites in early 2023, from which 11 sites were identified for possible residential use.
These sites, along with a further 5 identified in the Wiltshire Strategic Housing and Economic Land Assessment (SHELAA) have undergone a comprehensive site assessment, resulting in a shortlist of sites which are potentially suitable for allocation in the Neighbourhood Plan.
Please note that material is posted to this website within hours if not minutes of it being received.
