Warminster Town Councillors have opposed plans for nine new houses at Bradley Road.
Councillor Phil Keeble, Chair of the Planning Advisory Committee said: “Town Councillors have a number of concerns that have led us to object to this planning application.”
Amongst the points made by Councillors where:
- Concerns about access to the site and road safety – particularly the poor visibility of the access onto a road with high traffic speeds.
- Loss of natural habitat at a time when we are trying to protect and enhance biodiversity.
- Loss of amenity to nearby properties as the site forms a barrier between Bradley Close and the by-pass and the proposal will result in more traffic noise and fumes reaching them.
- Overdevelopment of the site in terms of the proposed density and layout, cramming nine properties into a small area.
- The loss of green fields
A decision on the planning application will be made by Wiltshire Council. The Town Council is only a consultee and its views are advisory.
