Wiltshire Council Core Strategy gets green light from Government

The Core Strategy, which has been developed in conjunction with Wiltshire communities over five years and has heard from hundreds of organisations, business and residents during public consultation, was given the stamp of approval.

The inspector's report, along with the Core Strategy, will now go to Cabinet on December 16 with a recommendation that it be approved by Full Council in January and adopted by Wiltshire Council.

Cllr Toby Sturgis, Conservative cabinet member for planning, said: “We are delighted that years of hard work in creating a robust development plan has paid off. It will act as a blueprint for the next decade on how we manage planning applications and the growth of homes and jobs for the people of Wiltshire. We would like to thank everyone who took part in the process. It is going to be a vital framework to steer the growth of Wiltshire while protecting our identity and heritage."
