Neighbourhood Planning: Westwood Update Special Edition

Westwood Parish Council has commissioned this Special Edition which is focussed solely on the very important topic of Neighbourhood Planning, the term used by central and local government to address the nation’s need for new housing and supporting services. In simple terms, there are central government targets for the provision of new housing, including the associated infrastructure and services, to meet the needs of a growing population, and each Local Authority must make their contribution to meeting those targets. Similarly, each Town and Parish Council will be expected to make a contribution to support their Local Authority. As there is a presumption that all Councils and Local Authorities will be positively supporting the needs of the nation, Westwood Parish will be expected to determine what types, how many and the locations of new housing in our area.  Special Edition Westwood Update

Plannning Applications

This will be a cause for considerable concern throughout our community, and we are already having to deal with planning applications for the building of new properties. However, Neighbourhood Planning is the formal process which has been defined to allow us, under the leadership of the Westwood Parish Council, with support from Wiltshire Council, to take ownership and control this key issue. It will enable us to determine the scope, scale and impacts of new housing developments within the parish boundaries.
