FURTHER progress has been made with North Bradley's Neighbourhood Plan as the final draft documents have been validated by Wiltshire Council who will now be carrying out the formal consultation before the it goes in front of a planning Inspector and then a final referendum.

Mrs Lee Lee, the Parish Council Vice-Chairman and Chairman of the Steering Group, said: “I am absolutely delighted to reach this stage.

"It has been a long and difficult process but we have had the advice of a knowledgeable consultant and have an enthusiastic Steering Group of dedicated volunteers who are seeing it through.

"Our residents have been very supportive throughout the various consultations. One particularly important policy has been to achieve a Landscape Gap between North Bradley village and the Wiltshire Council proposed development next to the White Horse Business Park. It looks as though we have achieved this.”
