After much work from the Neighbourhood Planning Steering Group members, Parish Councillors, and input from members of the parish we have had our final referendum version of the Neighbourhood Development Plan approved for the final vote which will take place on Thursday the 6th of May. You will receive information from Wiltshire Council regarding the vote and what it means, together with options for postal votes etc.

A Neighbourhood Development Plan is an important tool for local communities to shape the development and growth of the parish, in this case over the next 5 years or so until 2026. Once adopted any planning application in the parish will be judged against the Neighbourhood Development Plan.

Please take the time to read the main Market Lavington Neighbourhood Development Plan document before the vote so you can make an informed decision (please find link to document below).

The question asked in the referendum will be 'Do you want Wiltshire Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Market Lavington to help it decide planning applications in the Neighbourhood area?'

Wiltshire Council have published an Information Statement containing useful information in support of the Neighbourhood Plan referendum. The Information Statement along with the 'specified documents' referred to in the Information Statement are available to view and download from Wiltshire Council’s website using the following link:
