Village Expansion Update – Dec 2010

The Parish Council has had the meeting with the senior planners to clarify the context for the village expansion plans. The agreed minutes of that meeting have been posted on the village website.

The planners have been informally approached by the developers with their initial scheme for the revised Eastern Development Area, which includes plans for the land adjoining the village. We have argued that any plans formulated without reference to the village are premature and innappropriate. We should know more about this shortly.

In the meantime, Swindon are re-consulting on the Borough Core Strategy, which will ultimately govern the scope of the plans for the village. The Parish Council is reviewing the submissions that we made last year.

  1. I am aware that there was a meeting and presentation at the South Marston Hotel (quite ironic) involving members of the PC and SBC. Perhaps we could be enlightened as to what was being discussed. I understand it was to do with the transport infrastructure issue.
