The Amended Planning Application for 2,350 houses in South Marston and at the new village of Rowborough by Development consortium HHT is now out for public consultation
Swindon Borough have the documents put onto the Borough’s web site pa1.swindon.gov.uk/publicaccess/ reference S/OUT/13/1555. The official closing date for comments is the 3rd June. Not long!
The Parish Council is holding a display of the main Plans at the Village Hall on the 24th May between 3pm and 7pm, prior to the Annual Parish Meeting at 7.30. THIS IS NOW CONFIRMED.
The amended plans have accepted a number of features in the village Neighbourhood Plan, but there are still elements of concern such as the southern road to Keypoint and the link road to take pressure off Pound Corner, although both of these have been modified to an extent.
This is the last chance to influence these plans. As and when they are passed, development is likely to follow fairly rapidly. Villagers are encouraged to put in their own comments to the Borough.
