Land South of Filands (180 houses)

MAY 2015 BLOOR HOMES "RESERVED MATTERS" APPLICATION FOR 180 HOMES ETC

A "Reserved Matters" (Appearance, Landscaping, Layout and Scale) application by Bloor Homes for 180 dwellings, internal road network, garages & parking, drainage infrastructure, public open space and associated works, has been submitted to Wiltshire Council under planning reference 15/05015/REM for "Land South of Filands Road".


This application is a result of Gleeson Developments Ltd winning its Appeal in July 2014 against Wiltshire Council's refusal of outline planning permission, and Gleeson's subsequent decision to sell the site. The Appeal decision established the principle of development and the number of houses, thus objections to these matters are now irrelevant.


The application documents are available on the Wiltshire Council website here http://unidoc.wiltshire.gov.uk/UniDoc/Document/Search/DSA,851750. The Site Layout Plan is downloadable from the link at the bottom of this page.


Comments are invited until 2nd July using the form here


The Association will be commenting and if you have a comment you would like us to make, please inform the Chairman Roger Budgen mspwra@ymail.com
