Swindon Borough Local Plan 2026 has been submitted to the Planning Inspectorate, for the purposes of an examination to take place later this year. A Planning Inspector will be appointed to examine the Local Plan. The Inspector will take into account the representations submitted to the Local Plan at Pre Submission stage as far as they relate to soundness considerations and, on this basis, a number of hearing sessions identified by the Inspector will take place on principal matters as part of the examination.
Ian Kemp has been appointed as the Programme Officer and will act as the contact for any person who has an interest in the Examination.
