The following planning applications have been decided upon by Wiltshire Council recently.

Marlborough: Chippenham based GreenSquare Homes have been given planning permission to build 39 dwellings with associated details of access, appearance, layout, landscaping and scale at land off Rabley Wood View.

Marlborough: Planning permission has been granted to Mr Paul Adams of 56 Lockeridge to build a summer house in the front garden of the property.

Marlborough: Mrs J Ward of 53 London Road has been given permission to build a single dwelling with parking provisions and turning for the existing house at her property.

Chippenham: SPIE UK who are based at 1 Old Park Lane in Stretford has been given planning permission to install six charging points for electric vehicles, four power cabinets and a ring main unit at Chippenham Pit Stop on Draycot Cerne.

Royal Wootton Bassett: A planning application by Mr Stanley of 78 Boness Road, Wroughton to build a detached workshop at land adjacent to Old Park Farm, Vastern, Royal Wootton Bassett has been rejected.

In their refusal, the planning officer said that due to the developments conflict with Wiltshire’s Core Strategy, that the proposed development would result in harm to the landscape and countryside and would fail to integrate with the surroundings due to ‘its urbanising and utilitarian appearance’.

Officer, Sam Fox, also argued that because of the ‘introduction of a new commercial use at the site’ that the proposed development would cause further urbanising and ‘would poorly integrate into the surrounding rural landscape and those impacts could not be mitigated to an acceptable level and would significantly harm the character and appearance and visual amenities of the surrounding area’.

Trowbridge: Four, two-bedroom dwellings are due to be built on land behind 1, 2, 3 and 4 Harmony Place following a successful planning application by Claudia Raduk of 1 Harmony Place.

Holt: J&T Beaven Ltd of 117 The Midlands have received permission for the installation of french doors at the ground floor level of 118 The Midlands.
