A presentation was made at a public meeting on 6th September, 2014, to:
The Village Design Statement has been completed and the illustrated version is now available. This has been adopted by the Parish Council and has been submitted to Wiltshire Council for their endorsement.
It will then become a material consideration in the determination of planning applications in our Parish. Applicants for planning permission will need to demonstrate that they have had regard to its contents.
This document was produced buy the Porton, Idmiston & Gomeldon Community Plan Steering Group based on the information given by the community; this has become increasingly important due to the demise of Salisbury District Council and the birth of Wiltshire Unitary Council.
This community plan (and the Village Design Statements when produced) will have to be considered by Unitary Planning Officers and Idmiston Parish Council members, when looking at any change in Idmiston Parish.
This is just the beginning of a long-term project. The community plan must be updated regularly, but equally as important, a village design statement should also be produced. This document should help to unite the community and help us all to work together to achieve our common aims.
