The following planning decisions were made by Wiltshire Council recently:

Hullavington: Planning permission has been granted for a new dog daycare in Hullavington.

Mr C Bond of Barnfield Farm, The Street put in a bid with Wiltshire Council to change the use of Blackberry Barn to that of a dog daycare and kennels with some equestrian use.

The successful bid will also allow for the retention of a mobile home which is used to house a rural worker.

In granting the application, the council also imposed some conditions on the land, including: “The occupation of the mobile home accommodation hereby permitted shall be limited to a person solely or mainly working, or last working, in connection with the overnight kenneling of dogs, the training/keeping/breeding of horses, in agriculture, or in forestry in the locality, or a widow or widower of such a person, and to any resident dependants.”

Devizes: Plans to transform former CCG offices into housing have been withdrawn.

NHS Property services had proposed to turn the CCG office at Southgate House in Devizes into 33 residential properties.

Devizes Town Council raised no objections to the plans

However, those plans have now been withdrawn.

Stanton St Bernard: A new wildlife pond will be created in Stanton St Bernard.

Melanie Humphries-Cuff of The Old Post House submitted a planning bid with Wiltshire Council to create a 54m pond in their garden.

The main consideration with the pond was the potential impact on the character of the area and its sitting within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

The officers, who approved the bid, said: “No details have been provided of the filtration plant but there is no reasonable likelihood of this materially impacting on neighbouring amenities in terms of noise.”

Chippenham: Plans to turn Mark Place offices into flats have been withdrawn.

The bid by Market Place Holdings would have seen the offices at 5A Market Place in Chippenham transformed into six self-contained apartments.

Worton:A planning bid to replace a “substandard” house with a new property has been given the green light.

Amanda Markwick of Moores Cottage, Worton applied to Wiltshire Council to construct a new house to replace the current and substandard one.

The former house on the land has already been demolished which was approved by a previous application.

Supporting the plans, resident Nick Matthews said: “I am pleased to see a more considered design for the site, the proposal has more articulation and addresses many of my concerns.

“I would suggest the top east facing windows are obscured.

“Otherwise I am happy to support this application which is a significant improvement on the previous proposal.”

Upper Seagry: Plans to demolish and replace a house in Upper Seagry have been withdrawn.

Vanessa Buchan of Seagry House, 30 Upper Seagry had submitted plans to demolish the current two-bedroom property at her address to replace it with a new home.

The proposed three-bedroom residential dwelling would have had separate carer's accommodation attached.

Seend: Plans for an additional travellers pitch on former agricultural land in Seend has been approved.

Anne-Marie Harahan Land at A361, Trowbridge Road has won planning permission to change the use of the Trowbridge Road land to allow for one more pitch at the site.

According to the planning conditions placed on the bid, no more than two caravans, of which only one can be static, can be sited on the land.

The land has been occupied lawfully since 2017 when the applicant submitted a bid for a Static Mobile Home, Dayroom, hardstanding for turning area, parking for a Tourer and two vehicles together with a septic tank.

The parish council strongly opposed the bid however, noting that the 2017 application saw 150 letters submitted against the application which led to the resignation of the chairman and vice chairman of the parish council at the time.

It said: “There is still strong parishioner opposition to this new planning application for an additional static pitch, just a resignation from many, who despite their views, feel that Wiltshire Council will again not listen to their concerns.

“Hence there may not be as many letters of objection compared with the previous application, yet the strength of feeling is still the same.”
