Neighbourhood Planning. Under the government's Localism Act, Malmesbury gained Front Runner status in 2011 as a flagship town to create a Neighbourhood Plan. The plan was put to a local referendum in late 2014 and accepted by 90% of those that voted. The final Plan was adopted by Wiltshire Council on 25th February 2015, see here.

- The first site fully to be proposed under the provisions of the Neighbourhood Plan is that at Backbridge Farm, application lodged July 2016.
- An outline application outside the provisions of the Neighbourhood Plan, for 71 dwellings at Land South of Filands, was lodged on behalf of Gleeson Developments Ltd, also in July 2016. Wiltshire Council refused the application on 25th October 2016.
