I WISH to respond to Mr Evans’ letter from November 2, Better idea for site, and update the local community with regard to possible proposals for the old C H Thomas site at the Causeway in Chippenham.
I can confirm that an invitation to attend the next planning, environment and transport committee was accepted by representatives connected with new proposals for this site. A presentation was due to be made to the committee at the meeting yesterday, commencing at 6.30pm, and members of the public are welcome to attend.
This continues to highlight the importance of early engagement with developers in connection with proposals for the town and ensuring elected members and residents have the opportunity to raise concerns at an early stage.

Chairman of Planning,
