Wiltshire Core Strategy

The Wiltshire Core Strategy Development Plan Document ('the plan') was formally adopted on 20 January 2015. The plan provides a positive and flexible overarching planning policy framework for Wiltshire for the period up to 2026.

The plan was submitted to the Secretary of State on 10 July 2012 for examination and the inspector's report was published in December 2014. The inspector's recommended main modifications have been included in the adopted plan.

The Wiltshire Core Strategy replaces the South Wiltshire Core Strategy as well as a number of policies from the former district council's local plans.
