Developers back with plan to build 50 homes near Purton
6:30pm Thursday 3rd January 2013 in News
Developers have returned with a plan to build 50 homes on a site near Purton just months after a previous application was thrown out.
Wain Homes have submitted an application for up to 50 houses, including 15 affordable homes, access and associated works at Widham Farm Campaign group Purton Ps and Qs have suggested the developer is riding on the back on the decision to allow 700 houses to be built at Ridgeway Farm, after the Secretary of State ruled Wiltshire Council cannot show an adequate five-year land supply.
The move follows previous applications – in 2008, for 148 homes and open space, which was refused on appeal in 2009; and in 2011, reduced to 50 homes and rejected on appeal in October 2012.
Views on the application must be sent in by Monday and can be emailed to Developmentmanagementnorth@wiltshire.gov.uk citing reference Land at Widham Farm/Widham Grove, Station Road, Purton, Wiltshire (REF 12/04009/OUT).
