As Preshute is a relatively small parish, we usually hold Planning meetings within our usual full Council meetings. Timing of discussion of any proposed planning application disucssion can be found on the full Council agenda notified on this website and our notice board at Clatford crossroads.
At a meeting on 14th July, Preshute Parish Council unanimously voted to leave the Marlborough Area Neighbourhood Plan. The Minutes of this meeting can be found here.
This reluctant decision was made after extensive discussion and a detailed review of Preshute's association with this project.
A unanimously approved statement from Preshute Parish Council on this action can be found here.
If any member of the public wishes to make a comment on any Planning Application coming before the Council, please send this in writing to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org

Planning application notices (green signs) are displayed near to the relevant site by Wiltshire Council and details are included on the website; http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/planning-new . The Parish Council also displays applications details on this website below.
Parish Councillors must maintain an independent, impartial view until the Council has considered and debated each application in the relevant planning meeting. Consequently Preshute Parish Council has established a procedure for reviewing applications as follows.
The Parish Council is a consultee in the planning process and does not make the final decision regarding planning applications. The approval or rejection of applications is made by Wiltshire Council which is the local planning authority. The Parish Council’s role is merely to indicate its support or objection after considering the details and taking a vote or obtaining general consensus. We also submit comments if necessary however Wiltshire Council’s final decision may not reflect the Parish Council’s recommendations.
It may help applicants to be aware of the guidance Wiltshire Council gives on the factors that are relevant in making the planning decision.
