Wincanton Neighbourhood Plan

The Town Council has produced a Neighbourhood Plan, which sets out the type of future growth the town needs.

It includes policies to support new workspace and jobs, the green spaces that need protecting, a project to improve the town centre environment and many others. When adopted, it will sit alongside the Local Plan and influence planning decisions.

The next stage is to hold a Referendum, which will take place on 8th February 2018. If successful, the Plan will be 'Made' i.e. become a formal part of our local planning system.

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 view the Plan using the link below. Or you see how the Plan was produced using the links on the left.
