A decision over whether 138 homes can be built at the Kingston Farm site in Bradford on Avon will be made at Wiltshire Council’s strategic planning committee meeting today.

The committee is being recommended to grant planning permission for the mixed use development in Holt Road, which will include 138 homes, new employment space, on site public open space, community allotments, off site highway and drainage works, and a strategic landscape scheme.

The site has been identified for strategic growth in the draft Wiltshire Core Strategy. It has received support from Bradford on Avon Town Council and Holt Parish Council.

The scheme is being led by BoA Property Ltd, CG Fry & Sons and landowner Shaun Moulton.

A representative of the development said: "We have spent the last seven years working with the council and local community because we are passionate about good quality development that builds communities in a sustainable and considered way."

The final proposal provides 30 percent affordable housing, an upgrade of the drainage system and off-site highway works to improve links to the town centre.

The current Anthony Best Dynamics factory will be taken over by the Moulton Bicycle Company, Anthony Best Dynamics will move into a new factory and offices, creating 45 new jobs and space for a new work hub for creative and engineering businesses will create up to 250 extra jobs.

Nice idea but does BOA need more traffic?

How about a stipulation of the deal being that the Moultons alleviate town centre misery and allow some of their land to be used to funnel traffic out of BOA
