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.
