DEVIZES AREA NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN GETS THE GO-AHEAD!

The Devizes Area Neighbourhood Plan (DANP) received overwhelming support on 17th September 2015 when over 90% of those who voted decided to vote ‘YES’ in favour of the Plan.

Wiltshire Council will now have to take the DANP into consideration when deciding planning applications. This provides Devizes, Roundway and Bishops Cannings with an effective defence against developers who want to build large housing estates on greenfield sites on the outskirts of the town. Houses will still be built to fulfil the target set for Devizes, but the aim is to use up smaller, brownfield sites spread more evenly. These sites are either within the Settlement Framework Boundary or within a 20 minute walking distance of the Market Cross and have been consulted on widely in the local community. To see where these sites are and to view the DANP in full – go to www.devizesareaplan.org.uk.

A big thank you to everyone who made the effort to vote in favour of the Plan and therefore for the good of the community!
