Celebrating our Heritage Enhancing our Environment Shaping our Future

Neighbourhood Development Plan

Salisbury City Council is preparing a Neighbourhood Development Plan that will help shape and guide future development in our city.

Neighbourhood planning gives communities the power to develop a shared vision for their area. The policies in the neighbourhood plan can have a long-term positive impact upon the future of Salisbury. The plan will add local detail to Wiltshire planning policies based on the priorities identified by the Salisbury community.

The neighbourhood plan will be prepared alongside other Wiltshire Council projects such as the Central Area Framework and the emerging Local Plan. Together, we hope to create a robust and attractive context within which Salisbury will grow and thrive.

The Neighbourhood Plan is managed by a steering group composed of members of the Salisbury community and elected Salisbury City councillors. The steering group is supported by town planning consultants.

Neighbourhood Planning is based on consultation with the community. Throughout the 2-year preparation period, the steering group will be meeting with the wider community to understand what Salisbury needs. The whole consultation process started in May and June 2019 with a series of 6 consultation events.  With the aims of the plan having been agreed individual working groups have been established and are being led by members of the steering group.

The topic groups and their leaders are:

Climate Change – Tom Corbin, Louis Hodgkinson

Transport and Movement – David Wilson

Natural Environment – Nicola Lipscombe

Design – Peter Dunbar

Housing – Kate O’Connor

Employment – Jamie Hobson, Mark Stevens
