Notice of Regulation 14 Pre-Submission Consultation and Publicity on the Draft Melksham Neighourhood Plan
Melksham Town Council and Melksham Without Parish Council have prepared a Draft Neighbourhood Plan for the parishes of Melksham Town and Melksham Without. 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 Melksham Neighbourhood Plan and invite comments. Copies of the Plan will be available for public inspection for six weeks commencing Monday 1st June 2020 and ending at midnight on Monday 13th July 2020.
The decision to proceed with this consultation has been 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 are invited to call or email with any questions or for support to access the plan and/or the comments form. Please keep checking the website for updates.
The draft plan will be available for inspection online at www.melkshamneighbourhoodplan.org a comments form is also available to download.
