Wiltshire Council’s Spatial Planning Team have written to all Town and Parish Councils asking that they comment on potential development sites for possible inclusion as allocations in the emerging Site Allocation Development Plan Document (DPD). Atworth Parish Council responded by emphatically stating that they believed that this was not a suitable site and gave reasons for this. (Click here for response)
Chris Beaver of PlanningSphere, Bath, submitted representations to Wiltshire Council on behalf of the site owners, Mr Webb, Ms Hough and Braeman Holdings (part of the Doric Group of companies) in respect of land adjacent to Atworth Business Park. Their representations propose that the above site is included as an allocation in the Site Allocation DPD for mixed-use development comprising housing (circa up to 40 units). On 19th August the Parish Council met with Chris Beaver and informed him of their view that this site was wholly unsuitable and gave their reasons for this conclusion.
The next opportunity to comment will be the Public Consultation with Wiltshire Council which will take place in February 2016.
