URGENT! Two development applications have been made by developers to Wiltshire Council, for the areas that the developers call Rawlings Green and Chippenham Riverside. The public consultation period on the applications is currently open; the consultation closes formally on Friday March 4th 2016 BUT we understand that any submissions made in the week after that will be accepted.
To respond, click on each of the links below and then click on the "Comment on this application" link in the top right-hand area of the planning webpage.
Potential alternative sites.
- Barrow Farm (in Area A) for up to 450 houses.
- Area D (SW of Pewsham) which could be linked to the A350 with a Southern Link Road.
- Increasing the number of houses in Area E by bringing forward the 150 which were to be built immediately after 2026; and further homes down to a Southern Link Road.
- Use of brownfield sites; for example Langley Park could take extra houses.
If a combination of these sites were chosen by the council there would be no need to build houses on Areas B and C.
Please make sure that as many people in your house as possible each respond to Wiltshire Council.
The more responses that can be sent the better!
We accept the need for more house (and always have done), but do not think that the Avon and Marden valleys are the logical or desired place for them.
Thank you for your support. Please stop this devastation of the Avon and Marden river valleys.
