The consultation closes on Tuesday 9 March, and although there will be a further consultation later in the year, people should take this opportunity to have their say about the future of housing, infrastructure and land for employment in their area.

Cllr Toby Sturgis, Cabinet Member for Planning, said: "We have had an excellent response to the consultation so far, with more than 500 submissions, but with less than two weeks to go until the closing date, we're asking anyone that hasn't already responded to do so by 9 March.

"All the Local Plan documents and an online form for people to have their say are on our website, and anyone without internet access who wants to have their say can contact our Spatial Planning team to discuss the plan in their area and submit their comments.

"People can call 0300 456 0100 to speak to one of our officers, and if they don't have access to the internet, they can also request printed copies of the documents and can write to us to submit their comments.

"It's really important that people take this opportunity to let us know what they think, as feedback we receive will help to shape the next 15 years of development in Wiltshire."

All the information on the Local Plan, including all documents, write ups of the engagement events, and how to submit comments, is available at Local Plan Review consultation 2021.

Written submissions can be sent to: Local Plan review consultation, Spatial Planning, County Hall, Bythesea Road, Trowbridge BA14 8JN.

This consultation is taking place alongside the Gypsies and Travellers Plan, which will look to allocate land for travellers in sustainable locations to meet their permanent and temporary accommodation needs up until 2036.

To find out more about the Gypsies and Travellers Plan consultation, which also closes on 9 March, and to have their say, people should go to Gypsy and Travellers - planning.
