The deadline for responses to the Swindon Borough Council Core Strategy is 18:00, Thursday 16th June 2011.  Although the ORA plans to respond formally to the Core Strategy, if you have your own individual concerns you wish to direct to the council, you have only a few days left within which to do so.

Details of the Core Strategy can be found here, there is an online response form available here, or you can email a response directly to forwardplanning@swindon.gov.uk.
