Proposals for self-build homes in Warminster have taken another step forward after a positive response to recent exhibitions and surveys.

A plot of land at Boreham Road has been identified for the project and questionnaires circulated in Warminster and Bishopstrow generated over 100 responses, with the majority favouring a low density development. “The consultation on the next stage is likely to take place early autumn; if the responses are positive a referendum, where all local people vote, will be held next spring,” said Michael Mounde, from the steering group planning the process.
