Delight as plan for 175 homes is ditched

Swindon Advertiser: Coun Peter Greenhalgh, front, with fellow councillors and residents, who are delighted the plan for houses near Lydiard Park has been rejected by a Government inspector Coun Peter Greenhalgh, front, with fellow councillors and residents, who are delighted the plan for houses near Lydiard Park has been rejected by a Government inspector

RESIDENTS are ecstatic after the final nail was put in the coffin for plans to build nearly 200 homes near Lydiard Park.

An appeal was submitted against Swindon Council’s decision to reject plans to build more than 175 new homes in Hook Street on the country park’s doorstep.

The proposals, by Primegate Properties (Hooknorth) Ltd, were unanimously refused by the council’s planning committee in October after more than 200 residents wrote to object.

The company appealed and a public inquiry was held last month.

The proposal has now been killed off after a Government-appointed planning inspector dismissed the appeal stating the development would not be acceptable.

Geoffrey Hill, the inspector appointed by Eric Pickles, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, said in his report: “Development of the appeal site would not be acceptable.

“At the local scale and under current circumstances it would undesirably spread urban development into the rural hinterland of Swindon and it would also harm the setting of the registered park and garden.

“Accordingly, the appeal should be dismissed.

The community came together to fight against the proposals from day one and are delighted with the result.

David Barnard, organiser of the Lydiard Fields Action Group (LFAG), said: “It’s great news.

“I think when the community does rally together and identifies a common cause it is a very powerful force and we should do that more often.

“If you just sit back and don’t get involved things happen that you don’t want and suddenly you could have a supermarket behind you.”

Grange Park resident Barrie Brocks, a vocal campaigner since the initial application, said: “I’m chuffed – it was just common sense.

“It just goes to show the effort of the council and the residents of LFAG.”

South Swindon MP, Robert Buckland, attended the inquiry and fought hard alongside residents to keep the development away from one of the town’s biggest assets.

“I am absolutely delighted,” he said.

“I would like to pay tribute to all the residents and councillors who all worked tirelessly and really got behind this campaign. It just shows what a community can do when it gets together and rolls its sleeves up.

“This wasn’t just a local issue it was an all Swindon issue, Lydiard is a jewel in the crown for Swindon which can still be enjoyed by everyone thanks to this decision.

“I hope this will bring an end to speculative applications in the area.”

Councillor Nick Martin (Con, Shaw and Nine Elms), said: “Hopefully it will put an end to development in the rest of West Swindon.

“It’s a shame we have had to go to such a great extent to defend what we know in our own minds.”

Coun Peter Greenhalgh (Con, Freshbrook and Grange Park) and cabinet member for planning, said: “I think Swindon was able to demonstrate the proposed site was not within our local development local plan boundaries.”

“At the local scale and under current circumstances it would undesirably spread urban development into the rural hinterland of Swindon and it would also harm the setting of the registered park and garden."

On this basis can we expect SBC to abandon all the greenfield site developments proposed in the Core strategy or is it a case of not in the Conservative Councillors and MP's back gardens.

I'm sure the people of South Marston would be delighted if this were the result.

We have offered brown field sites and other smaller non contentious sites which could handle about 500 house, perhaps SBC indicate they accept our offer.

Just one thing does 'hinterland' have more than one definition I thought it referred to land adjacent to ports, or coastal waters.

I'm sure they wouldn't make the stand if the same thing was happening in Penhill, Stratton, Dorcan and other areas of the town. Bearing in mind where the Council do let new houses get built, the developer must be wondering what the Council have against them.

Not really sure what your point is here - of course they've stood up against something they don't want in their community and well done to them for their achievement. Presumably the people of Penhill, Stratton, Dorcan and other areas, plus their respective Councillors & MPs, would stand up for themselves too if it was in their area?

Bob-Geoffrey Hill Bsc Dip TP MRTPI is a well educated and qualified professional examiner. I find it amusing that you should question his statement as to the area being a hinterland. Then claiming your definition to be the original. I must assume therefore you do not accept the OED is the basis of our words and
definition of them?
OED defines the origin as from the German 'hinter'=behind and Land= 'land' thus hinterland.
Noun 1= the remote areas of a country away from the coast or the banks of major rivers.
Noun 2= an area lying beyond what is visible or known.
Addendums are--a market town serving its rich agricultural hinterland.
Or the area around or beyond a major town or port.
Therefore our town does have hinterlands by definition on all counts.
A good decision and i suggest helpful to the Coate campaign.

Rodbourne (even Swindon) was built completely on farm land to house the growing number of Rail workers--mainly due to the poor quality of the land and despite being on a major water table. Possibly before planning controls--dont know-ask the historians. Most of Swindon was built on former green areas it seems. The argument is that we are losing all our green spaces in an overcrowded town.

There are some really ridiculous comments from some people with the usual attempts from Bob Feal-Martinez to politicise everything to criticize anyone but UKIP- this actually relflects extremely badly on your party when you turn it into a political debate when the issue at hand was far more important.

In regards to the references to people as the "nimby crew", is it so bad to be a "nimby" if it means protecting your local area?

Lydiard Park is used by people from all parts of Swindon and housing in that field would have set a dangerous precedent for the surrounding area where the developers are already carrying out a scoping exercise.

People may live close to Lydiard now, but that doesn't mean that we could tear up the housing in the area and return it to green land- that is not possible or realistic so there is no hypocrisy in preventing any further development.

I do think "itsamess" made some very good points though and Bob could probably learn a lot from that person.

Perhaps when those houses were built there was a buffer zone. Fortunately authorities are maybe beginning to realise how important Lydiard House and Park are to Swindon as are green areas around town--perhaps as a claimed Rodbourne resident you do not use Mannington park or if you have them want your children to enjoy it before more and more of it is lost. So no i do not believe these folk are as you say hypocrites--they have proved our green spaces should not been given up.

They are incentivising LA's with 6 years domestic rates for every house they build.

Very little farming goes on around
Swindon these days. The proposals for South Marston village stems from certain groups supporting expansion
of business' in the village which gives the notion they can accept more housing in areas where the infrastructure simply cannot support or sustain building. Other small farms are glad to sell off farmland rather than continue losing money. My view--although biassed due to generations of family ties to S. Marston it should remain the pleasant village it is. I also believe the rural areas planned to be swamped with houses will only serve to turn our town into no more than a dead end town. A place only to commute to other towns and cities along the M4 corridor. We are already creeping up on all the small villages that surround our town.

The villagers are content to have places like Crown Timber and Leggits developed for housing, if you like Walter I will show where they are, and smaller clusters, like the land behind the hotel, and perhaps the unsightly brown sites currently occupied by transport and related companies, developed.

The village infrastructure cannot sustain the volume of houses once again proposed by SBC. The Parish is in the order of £25k out of pocket for believing SBC that our proposals would be inclusive of the core strategy. As was said on 105.5 Thursday, and not by me, were we naive enough to believe SBC, yep it seems.

As for being an outsider, for once you have something right.

There is absolutely no way that land management companies would hand over 70% of land value if there were a covenant preventing building.
