PLANS for the long-awaited Innox Mills site in Trowbridge have been submitted to Wiltshire Council. 

Developer Innox Mills has put in a hybrid planning bid for the hundreds of properties, a convenience store and commercial space on Stallard Street in the county town. 

Outline permission has been sought to build up to 284 properties on the former mill land, as well as 872sqm of commercial space.

The bid also seeks full planning permission to build a convenience store and 12 apartments which will require parts of the building to be demolished and extended. 

Full details of the development can be found here.

The former Bowyer’s factory closed its doors in 2008 by the owners Northern Foods, and it was proposed that Wiltshire College would move its campus to the site, but this plan fell through. 

The site was then bought by Morrisons with the intention to redevelop the site in 2013 and 2014.

But the changing retail landscape reduced the demand for large-scale stores, this is when the site was bought by Innox Mills Ltd.

It is said that number 5 to 9 Stallard Street, also owned by the developer, will be subject to separate plans. 

Numbers 7 to 9 were already subject to successful listed building bids, last year. Work on which is expected to finish up in 2022. 

Comments on the application should be received by Friday, October 8, 2021.
