There is a proposal to create an Eastcott plan using the mechanism of a ‘Forum’. ‘Forum’ in this context is a separate Government term for the process by which residents create the plan. The suggestion is that the Forum could identify issues that Swindon Council’s Planning Committee would need to consider only in the Eastcott Ward.
There are currently two planning frameworks that cover Eastcott. A ‘Local Plan’ and a ‘Neighbourhood Plan’. The Forum would add issues to the Neighbourhood Plan.
If you have issues that could be covered by revisions to the planning process in Eastcott, for example change of use of shops and pubs; green spaces and play areas; or turning houses into flats or even the renting of houses, please get in touch.
