Regulation 15 is now COMPLETE.

The Steering Group have completed the Reg.15 stage of the Neighbourhood Plan process. This involved responding to comments received from the Reg14 consultation held earlier in the year, and amending the Draft Plan and Evidence Base reports to reflect comments that were relevant. The reviewed Reg. 14 Consultation DRAFT version (now the Submission Plan) was presented to the Parish Council for their approval at the July meeting.

The Seend Parish Neighbourhood Plan  - Submission Plan August 2020 and the reviewed Evidence Base Reports are  on this homepage and ready for the next stage of the plan. The Seend Parish Neighbourhood Plan - Submission Plan  will be submitted to Wiltshire Council who will hold a Regulation 16 consultation. There is another 6-week minimum period of consultation. The Plan will be examined and a report issued setting out whether the Plan meets the basic conditions.  If any modifications are needed they will be made before proceeding to a referendum.

Due to Covid-19 regulations, no referendum will be held before 6th May 2021. It will then be over to you. You have been waiting a long time (5 years now) but it will be 6 years before you are able to vote on it. Let’s hope we can all remember why we wanted to create a Neighbourhood Plan, and that we feel what has been produced was worth the journey. 

We encourage you to vote YES.

Please stay safe, sensible and sane till then. It’s not over yet.
