Question: What is Swindon Borough Council’s role?

Answer: Swindon Borough Council as Local Planning Authority has a duty to provide technical advice and support to those producing a Neighbourhood Plan. It also has to:

  • agree the boundary of the area to be covered by a Neighbourhood Plan
  • organise the check by an independent examiner into a Neighbourhood Plan and the referendum
  • adopt the Neighbourhood Plan and bring it into force.

The Council’s role should be clarified once the regulations have been adopted.
