Many Objections To The Planning Application For 34 Dwellings On The Edge Of The Smallbrook Meadows Nature Reserve, Warminster

Many Objections To The Planning Application For 34 Dwellings On The Edge Of The Smallbrook Meadows Nature Reserve, Warminster

Rod Simpson writes ~

There are many objections to the planning application for 34 dwellings on the edge of Wiltshire Wildlife Trust's Smallbrook Meadows Nature Reserve, Warminster. 

Proposal: Outline application for 34 dwellings on land to the East of Damask Way with all matters reserved except access (with new access proposed off Upper Marsh Road
Location: Land East of Damask Way and East of Upper Marsh Road and North of Smallbrook).

The Objections listed by Warminster Town Council in their recommended refusal of the application are listed below:

Objection Points

• The site was not under consideration on the Draft Wiltshire Housing Site Allocation Plan and Revised Settlement Boundaries which had been consulted on in September 2017.

The comment that had been submitted by the Council on the settlement boundary in the Damask Way area.

• Wiltshire Council had not included the site in application 17/12348/OUT in the revised settlement boundaries and the Town Council had supported its exclusion, therefore it would be inappropriate to include it now.

• The access point for this site would be disastrous. This section of Upper Marsh Road is narrow with no footpath and leads on to a narrow country road that is prone to flooding and often must be closed. Runoff water from the site would exacerbate the problem.

• The impact on the environment would be detrimental. The site is on the cusp of the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust area.

• There is a highways conflict with pedestrians, cyclists, horse riders and the residents of the old people’s home.

All objections need to be submitted by the 28th February 2018.

Should this application be successful it will set a precedence for property development on the cusp of Smallbrook Meadow.

Comments can be submitted by e-mail or the website as follows:

• E-mail: developmentmanagement@wiltshire.gov.uk

• Website: www.wiltshire.gov.uk (or insert the planning application number into google, once opened go to ‘download plans and documents’ link to view the plans and objections). 

• Application: Wiltshire Council Application No: 17/12348/OUT
