Working with the South Marston community and Swindon Borough Council, the SPD aims to establish an agreed strategy for the village that responds to the unique development pressures it is facing.
In starting this process NEW Masterplanning has looked around the village, to establish an understanding of the its character, pressures, issues and opportunities to feed into the preparation of the SPD.
This Workbook of plans highlights the findings of the analysis work. It provides a basis for further testing and exploration with the community as progress is made in the coming months to agree objectives, principles and options for the village. It does not set out any recommendations for change, seeking at this stage to identify the key points for the SPD process to consider.
In about two week’s time the initial report from Borough’s transport consultants for the Eastern Development Area (JMP) should be available. This will include their initial findings and suggestions for traffic movement in and through the village. The Workbook will be updated to include this information.
Please use this Blog post if you wish to make any comments on the points raised in the Workbook or any other aspects of future village expansion.
