PLANS to build 10 houses on land at Grove Farm off Binknoll Lane in Royal Wootton Bassett have been given the go-ahead.

The town council had objected to the scheme because it said the site entrance was at a dangerous location.

It said the application went against the neighbourhood plan because the town had already fulfilled its housing requirements.

And it claimed the kind of housing in the application did not reflect local need.

Other objections from residents complained of loss of privacy, increased noise, extra traffic and loss of light from gardens as well as the impact on local services.

In a report, Wiltshire Council planning officers said the brownfield site was outside the town's settlement boundary, but it was surrounded by recent residential developments and highways had not objected.

They concluded the level of development, the site layout, design and materials of the buildings were appropriate.

permission was granted subject to conditions including no work should start until a landscaping scheme had been approved and materials for external walls and roofs had been agreed.
