I was pleased to be able to join a number of residents from the village on Sept 2nd in the Parish Hall in respect of the possible development on land adjacent to Court Lane. After a seemingly long period of speculation on what the owners of the land were intending to pursue, it became obvious that there were early plans to potentially sell the land to a developer. Beyond this, it was again speculation on what might follow. However, I found it interesting to hear the views of all parties and could appreciate the unease and anxiety this was causing.

I indicated at the meeting, my role is very much to listen to the views of the community, the Parish Council and the owner/developer and guide all through the relevant planning guidance, alongside planning officers in Wiltshire Council.

As always, I am available to discuss matters affecting either this present set of circumstances or indeed other matters in the area.
