Swindon Borough Local Plan Review 2036: Revised Proposed Submission Version Statement of Representation Procedure incorporating the Statement of Fact.
Swindon Borough Council is undertaking a review of the adopted Swindon Borough Local Plan (2015) to cover the period to 2036 and relating to the whole administrative area of Swindon Borough.
The Swindon Local Plan Review (2036) sets out the development strategy and policy framework for Swindon and once adopted, will be used to guide decisions on planning applications up to 2036. Swindon Borough Council has published a second Regulation 19 consultation on the 'Revised Proposed Submission Draft' of the Local Plan for public representations, prior to the submission of the document to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government for independent examination.
The 'Revised Proposed Submission Draft', which the Council is now consulting on, proposes a range of strategies (including site allocations) to provide sufficient housing and employment sites to meet the Borough's future needs. It also includes draft development management policies to guide decision making on planning applications submitted to the Council, in accordance with changes to legislation and as a result of previous Regulation 19 responses.
