The Neighbourhood Plan is now at what is known as the Section 16 stage, and has been put out to public consultation in Devizes, Roundway and Bishops Cannings by Wiltshire Council's planning officers. Once that is complete, along with a local referendum, it will then go to the Planning Inspector for final examination, and eventual approval.

The snag with this is that it still cannot be adopted fully until the Wiltshire Core Strategy is finalised, but it is hoped that will happen around the same time as approval of the NP, hopefully by the end of 2014.

It is a living document, and will be added to and adapted as and when necessary by the communities involved. In the meantime, please make sure you express your views on the plan and vote in the referendum. Copies will be available at the Public Library in Devizes and at the Town Hall.
