Wincanton Neighbourhood Plan

The Town Council is producing a Neighbourhood Plan, which will set out what type of future growth the town needs and where it should go. For instance, where new workspace and jobs should be allowed, which community and leisure facilities are needed or if important green spaces need protecting. When adopted, it will sit alongside the Local Plan and influence planning decisions.

Neighbourhood Planning was enacted by the Localism Act 2012. Over 1300 communities across England are working on their Plan, and already over 100 have been passed at the referendum.

You can learn more about the Neighbourhood Plan in this section of the site, using the links on the left.
