Devizes Planning Issues

Posted by Philippa Morgan on 28 January 2016

Not one, not two, but three major planning issues are in the news this month. 

A date has been set for the new public enquiry which is being held to re-consider the application for 350 houses to be built on land near Coate Bridge. Although the planning application was rejected by the then Communities Secretary, Eric Pickles, the developers appealed against that decision. The enquiry will take place over 4 days, starting on Tuesday 5th April at 10am. It will be held in Braeside Education & Conference Centre, Bath Road, Devizes.

Secondly, there has been a surprise announcement that the revised proposal to build 123 homes on land off Quakers Walk has been called in by the Secretary of State. Views on the proposals must be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate by the end of February. Comments should be sent in triplicate direct to the Planning Inspectorate, Room 3/10b Kite Wing, 2 The Square, Temple Quay House, Bristol BS1 6PN, quoting the Inspectorate reference APP/Y3940/V/15/3142170.

The third planning matter concerns the development of 230 homes at Lay Wood, between Bishops Cannings and Devizes. Town councillors have concerns about a number of reserved matters and these need to be resolve before the development can start.
