Display Boards 3A and 3B: Download

The housing requirement in the draft Wiltshire Core Strategy is a key driver of new housing, with targets being set across the community area. Further details can be found at http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/wiltshire-core-strategy-pre-submission-document-with-bookmarks-february-2012 – core Policy 19 refers to our area – pages 102 through to 104.

A rural housing needs survey was carried out in February 2012. The aim of carrying out the survey is to investigate the affordable housing need for local people (or those who have a need to live in the parish or the locality) of Cricklade. Download

At its meeting on 22nd October 2012 Cricklade Town Council noted the contents of the Cricklade Town Plan 2012 and recognised that it represented the views of the community as expressed in the first quarter of 2012 and agreed to refer to the plan when taking decisions in the future. The plan is therefore key evidence, which will feed into the development of the Cricklade Neighbourhood Plan. A copy of the Cricklade Town Plan can be found here: Download
