Community feedback sought on draft Neighbourhood Plan for South East Wilton
Posted on: 17.06.2022
Council is seeking initial community feedback on the first Neighbourhood Plan for the South East Wilton Precinct, also known as Wilton Greens.
The South East Draft Neighbourhood Plan No.1 will provide for approximately 1,286 lots with a range of lot sizes, and includes both residential and employment lands, a local centre, a school, playing fields, and passive and active open spaces.
CEO Ben Taylor explained, “A Neighbourhood Plan submitted to Council is similar to a land use Master Plan prepared prior to lodgement of a Development Application. It provides an overview of how development is planned to roll out in Wilton, across part, or all of a precinct.”
“Council is committed to making sure that Wilton is a place where people can live happy and healthy lives, and we want to hear from people on the best way to achieve this.”
“This preliminary notification is about seeking important feedback prior to the draft Neighbourhood Plan being reported to Council.”
Council would like to hear resident’s thoughts on key elements of the concept, including:
- How the draft Neighbourhood Plan responds to the area’s natural features
- How the road, cycle and pedestrian networks connect people to their neighbourhood and beyond
- The provision of local facilities and infrastructure, including a school, public open space and playing fields
- How the movement and connections through the local centre allow for people to use the space
Once finalised, the Neighbourhood Plan will provide guidance for future development applications for the area and will be contained in the Wilton Development Control Plan.
The draft Neighbourhood Plan applies to stages two and three of the South East Wilton Precinct. Stage one has prior development approval and is currently under construction.
The draft Neighbourhood Plan is on preliminary notification from Wednesday 15 June 2022 to 5pm Friday 15 July 2022.
