Important News February 2018

The Referendum date has now been fixed for Thursday 8th March 2018.

The question to be put will be “Do you want Wiltshire Council to use the neighbourhood plan for Cricklade to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?

A neighbourhood plan for Cricklade will mean that our community will have more control over planning decisions that affect the town. It would also guarantee a higher level of infrastructure spending here on things such as car parking and play areas. Please make sure that your vote counts.

The Plan can be read here and an easy to read Factsheet can be read here.

Welcome to the Cricklade Neighbourhood Plan website.

Following on from the good work done by local volunteers towards the draft Town Plan, a Working Party of Councillors and professional volunteers has been established to draw together a Neighbourhood Plan for Cricklade. Its contents will be legally binding on the Local Planning Authority and concerned with future land use (housing, employment, open spaces, leisure and infrastructure).  This involves a much more formal process than that for the Town Plan as it is led by legislation and means that the needs of the community will be legally recognised.

The current composition of the Working Party is: Mark Clarke (Chair), John Coole, Lesley Cowley, Neil Dixon, Bob Jones, Tim Russell, Ruth Szybiak, Henning Totz, supported by a Cricklade Town Council officer.
