The Plain Action Geographical Area. The Plain Action Local Action Group Area is located in Wiltshire in the south west of England and encompasses Salisbury Plain itself with the immediate surrounding villages and market towns, creating a discrete and identifiable area.

It is an open exposed landscape with sparse villages, military establishments and isolated tenanted farms. Main transport routes are limited to the A303 cutting across the south east corner, the A360 running diagonally from Salisbury across to Devizes and the A350 running from Warminster north. The garrison towns of Westbury, Warminster, Tidworth, Amesbury, Bulford, Larkhill and Durrington predominate, providing lower cost housing but sometimes lacking in basic amenities, whilst Devizes provides an important service centre. Each settlement has a distinctive feel with the military playing an important role in the functioning of these places.
