Innovative planning approach to 20 home self build project in Warminster

25 October 2012

A pioneering self build project in Wiltshire that could provide up to 20 homes has taken a leap forward with the news that the local council is to trial an innovative planning approach to progress the development.

Warminster Town Council has agreed to set up a Neighbourhood Development Order to deal with the 3 acre riverside site in Boreham Road, Warminster. NDO's give local communities an opportunity to decide what they want to see on the land. They also give communities the chance to approve proposals – in full or in outline – without the need for a formal planning application.

i have been looking for a plot of land in this area for 2 years but how is a self builder going to afford a plot of land at these rediculous prices for a plot it is not in the greatest of areas i have a plot in westbury but have been refused planning because it is 6 feet outside town policy but david wilson homes have planning f permission for 119 houses strictly outside town policy 500 yards from my plot we are nobodys to councils compared to the big boys how are we small self builders going to build our houses when you have planning councels like this

Great to see Warminster Town Council take the lead on a new way of enabling small, considerate development and handing power to the local community to decide what they would like to be built.
