Rodbourne Cheney: Rodbourne Cheney Primary School’s parent organisation, the White Horse Federation, will be allowed to knock down a lean-to canopy and two portable toilets next to the sports equipment store on its playing field, and in their place put a new prefabricated block of four lavatories, individual cubicles with handbasins, all plumbed into the mains drainage.

The playing field is a few minutes’ walk from the main school building in The Broadway.

Eldene: A plan to knock down a bungalow and its garage could be knocked down to make space for two semi-detached houses on the corner of Elmore and Eldene Drive has been approved.

Developer PMIS Associates can knock down the bungalow at 3 Elmore replacing it with two attached “chalet-bungalows”.

Eldene Parish Council said the application has not addressed neighbours worries over increased parking on the road at the corner and said: “The building work will of course interrupt ‘normal life’ in the area and we suggest this is done with due consideration to other residents.”

Council officers were happy with the parking proposals and said the new buildings would not overbear neighbours.

Blunsdon: Neighbours in Berton Close are concerned by the proposal put forward by Martyn James to build a three-bed house in the back garden of 15 Malthouse Close.

The new building would front on to Berton Close and have a two-car parking space at one side.

Neighbours say they were not informed initially about the plan because of the address given in the application and are worried about noise, destruction of hedgerows and the possibility of another house being constructed later on the site.

Old Town: The developer that has nearly finished building flats from demolished houses has put in a request to change the interior lay out.

Malhavin Property Developments Ltd has nearly completed the 13 flats at 67-69 Victoria Road in Old Town.

The company has put in new layouts for basement, lower ground and ground-floor flats for approval from Swindon Borough Council planners.

Hannington: Farmland could be made over into a garden for a house converted from farm buildings.

Gillian Tertois has applied to change the use of a parcel of land at The Old Stables in Hannington Lane to a domestic garden. The land was part of Pond Farm to the south. The house was converted from Pond Farm buildings.
