Customer notice

This consultation closed on 8 August 2011. The following is provided for information purposes only.


The Wiltshire Core Strategy Consultation Document was consulted on during the summer of 2011 and sets out how Wiltshire will provide the new jobs required by our economy and the new homes for our growing and ageing population whilst protecting Wiltshire’s natural environment and strengthening our communities.

The document was shaped by previous consultations,and was the first time the draft strategy and policies that will manage how Wiltshire develops were brought together for consideration and comment by the wider community.

All comments received during the consultation have since been used to develop later versions of the core strategy.
