I’m sorry to have to tell you that Wiltshire Council have postponed the Referendum.
It will not now take place on the 19th March. We do not yet know how long it is postponed for . I have just spoken to the officer from Wiltshire who made the decision and he says that he will make sure that we get a date as soon as possible after it all dies down. He assures me that our plan will be given great consideration when deciding planning applications in the meanwhile because we are so near to completion.
Thank you all for your support but the decision was made in the interests of health and safety. I will write again when I know when the referendum has been rescheduled.
The Neighbourhood Plan has, after changes suggested in the examination report, been accepted to go to referendum. The referendum will be held on 19th March 2020 (see Neighbourhood Plans page for explanation).
The Neighbourhood Plan has been accepted by Wiltshire Council and should be going out for Reg 16 shortly.
The Neighbourhood Plan was presented to Lydiard Millicent Parish Council at the meeting on Thursday 14th March for permission to submit the plan, with some presentational revisions, to Wiltshire Council for Reg 15, and Reg 16. The motion was passed unanimously. After some more work on the plan in conjunction with Wiltshire Council Planning Dept. the plan is expected to be submitted at the beginning of May.
The next Neighbourhood plan steering meeting is on Tuesday 2nd April in the JCH at 7:30pm
The submission plan will be submitted to the Lydiard Millicent Parish Council on Thursday 14th March for permission to sent to Wiltshire Council Planning for Reg 16 consultation. This is the next step to getting our Neighbourhood plan passed.
The pre-submission consultation period has now expired, and the regulation 14 replies and report have been issued. You can view these by clicking on this link and downloading.
Consultation Lflt (4)
The pre-submission neighbourhood plan is now ready. The next stage is consultation – and an opportunity for you to have your say.
A copy of the consultation leaflet is available by clicking on the link above.
Mike Sharp, Chairman of the Steering Group, said “We have at last gone out to Consultation. This is a legal step we have to take on the route to getting our Plan passed by the inspector to allow us to have a referendum where you will be asked to vote on accepting the Neighbourhood Plan. After the consultation any amendments needed will be made, then it will be submitted to Wiltshire Council. If all goes well we would anticipate finalising the plan and going to referendum in March. A positive vote then means that our views have to be taken into consideration when Wiltshire Council determine planning applications.”
You can view a copy of the pre-submission plan here.
Comments must be in by 1st February 2019.

The pre-submission plan will be presented to Lydiard Millicent Parish Council for approval at Thursday’s Council’s meeting @7.30pm at JCH on Thursday 6 December 2018.
