Comment sheets are available online or at venues

After this final consultation and comments have been collated the plan will be submitted to Wiltshire Council to be publicised on their website for a further 6 weeks to permit wider consultation. Once this is completed Wiltshire Council will appoint an independent examiner to assess the plan to check that it conforms with local and national planning policies and E.U. Directives.

If all goes well the Inspector will recommend that a Referendum be held in the parish of Bradford on Avon to accept the plan.

The plan is nearing completion it has been a long process with some unexpected obstacles along the way. The Town Council would like to thank everyone who have helped with this Neighbourhood Plan especially the residents for their interest and contributions.
