Wiltshire Council is inviting Warminster residents to have their say on a pioneering scheme which could help people build their own properties in Warminster.
A plot of land at Boreham Road has been identified for the project which may see 20,50 or 70 new homes built. A blue print has already been produced for the road and the public are invited to voice their opinions on the plan.
Warminster is one of the first towns of the government scheme to put 'localism at the heart of their communities' through the new Neighbourhood Development Order process. Warminster Town Council is leading the process who has been given £20,000 of government funding for the project.
Rob Fryer, Mayor of Warminster said: "We want the community to tell us what they think about this development and this exhibition is one way that people can view the suggested plans and give us feedback on what should happen next."
The exhibition of the proposed plans will be held at Warminster Civic Centre on Tuesday, 19, March 2013 from 1pm to 7pm. Members of the steering group including members from Warminster Town Council will be attending the exhibition as well as developers.
After this event, the exhibition will be available to view at Bishopstrow Village Hall on Wednesday, 20 and Thursday, 21, March 2013 then it will be available to view in Warminster Library. Responses of the proposal will be voiced through a questionnaire.
A questionnaire will be available to fill out from April, 5, 2013 here.
