Councillor John Brady, Cabinet member for Economic Development, Planning and Housing presented the report which noted the progress made and confirmed site options which are excluded from further consideration and also those that are suitable to be carried forward.  Further assessments would be taking place and it was confirmed that the results of these would be available of the Council’s website.

  1. Targeted consultation is undertaken on the Petersfinger site submitted during the consultation.


  1. On the basis of the detailed assessments, a local figure for aggregate provision in Wiltshire and Swindon is produced and the Director of Economy and Enterprise and Cabinet Member, in consultation with their counterparts in Swindon, should write to SWRAWP and central government notifying them of the provision that can be met for the period to 2026.



Reason for the decision
