DECISION:
The Designation of Chippenham Neighbourhood Area is approved in accordance with section 61G of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 as amended for the purposes of Neighbourhood Planning.
As the area specified in the application consists of the whole of the town council’s area it has been designated without consultation in accordance with Regulation 5A of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 as amended in 2016. This regulation 5A states amongst other things that where this regulation applies, regulations 6 and 6A of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 as amended in 2016 do not apply.
A map of the designated neighbourhood area is provided on the following page.

I have no private interests to declare in respect of this matter which would prevent me from designating this neighbourhood area.
