Swindon Borough Local Plan Review 2036: Regulation 19 Consultation

Swindon Borough Council are currently carrying out a review of the current Local Plan for the Borough of Swindon.

Housing delivery in Swindon is increasingly reliant on large-scale new communities allocated for development in the Local Plan 2026, including the New Eastern Villages and Kingsdown. Due to delays in delivering these strategic sites, there is a residual requirement of housing delivery to be met in the interim and short-term timescales.

A Local Plan Regulation 19 consultation is currently being undertaken. This is the last round of public consultation before the plan is submitted for examination by the Planning Inspectorate. This consultation looks at the proposed emerging policies and development strategy, arising from previous rounds of consultation and evidence.

If you have development interests within the Swindon area, we strongly recommend submitting representations to the Local Plan consultation, the deadline for submissions is 31st January. IPS would be happy to assist you, please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to discuss this with us further.
