Creating our plan

Salisbury City Council is preparing a Neighbourhood Development Plan that will help shape and guide future development in our city

Neighbourhood planning gives communities the power to develop a shared vision for their area. The policies in the neighbourhood plan can have a long-term positive impact upon the future of Salisbury. The plan will add local detail to Wiltshire planning policies based on the priorities identified by the Salisbury community.

The neighbourhood plan will be prepared alongside other Wiltshire Council projects such as the Central Area Framework and the emerging Local Plan. Together, we hope to create a robust and attractive context within which Salisbury will grow and thrive.

The Neighbourhood Plan was managed by a steering group composed of members of the Salisbury community and elected Salisbury City councillors. The steering group is no longer meeting as the draft Neighbourhood Plan has been completed.

As of September 2023, the plan is being finally prepared for the Regulation 16 public consultation.

Neighbourhood Planning is based on consultation with the community.


In the coming months, the Regulation 16 consultation will be conducted on the draft plan by Wiltshire Council.

Following the Consultation, the comments received will be passed to an independent examiner, to be appointed by Wiltshire Council, who will consider the representations and determine if the draft Plan should be put to a community referendum.
