Public meeting dates announced.

The Rail Passengers Committee has announced the dates for various meetings to discuss the rail routes between Devon & Bristol to Waterloo via Salisbury.

A 'briefing note' has now been produced by WWDC.

Monday January 10, 2005
To confirm earlier postings on this site the District Council meeting to decide the application has been arranged for Friday January 28th at the Civic Hall in Trowbridge, commencing at 7.00 pm.

There will also be a 'closed to the public' meeting held at the District Council on 13th Jan at 7pm. This is, according to WWDC, "to allow an exchange of information between Members and Officers." The leader of the council has denied that this meeting is intended to steer members towards making the 'correct' decision later this month.

District Council news from Ernie Clark, your Independent district councillor.

Not so much a news item, as an advert!

'Hilperton Presents' will be staging Sleeping Beauty at Hilperton Village Hall at the end of January.

Two dates confirmed for meetings about the proposed road.

Friday December 24, 2004
Details of the WWDC planning committee meeting to discuss the Persimmon application, to build a road across the Hilperton Gap, have been confirmed. It will be held on Friday 28 January at Trowbridge Civic Hall, commencing at 7.00 pm.

In addition an informal 'closed to public' meeting of the WWDC planning committee has been called for Thursday 13 January.

Two local applications were decided.

Saturday December 11, 2004
The application for five new houses as an extension to the Newlands Homes development in Marsh Road (04/01972) was given permission, but not before I had tried to secure a commuted cash sum to help maintain the planned play area. Two of the new homes will have to be 'affordable houses'.

The application to build in Whaddon Lane (04/01686) was refused. My proposal gave four grounds ranging from highway issues to the siting of the proposed building and its relationship with the surrounding area. I was somewhat surprised when Trevor Carbin spoke against me (i.e. in favour of the new house) as we normally have very similar views on planning matters.

An exhibition of the relocation proposals will be held next week.

Wednesday December 08, 2004
Pegasus Planning Group (the company that seems to deal with all the Persimmon planning applications in this area) have announced an exhibition to be hosted by the rugby club and their agents, Caldecotte Consultants.

Three appeals have been lodged against recent planning refusals.

Wednesday December 08, 2004
Developers have, as expected, lodged appeals against three of the recent refusals handed out by the district council planning committee. Rather than work with your local councillors, and Parish Council, to find a mutually beneficial solution the developers would rather suffer the delay and cost implications of going to appeal; or are they trying to frighten the district council by dangling the spectre of costs over WWDC?

The formal planning application has now been lodged.

Saturday December 04, 2004
A planning application has been lodged with the district council. The recently signed Section 106 agreement actually removed the requirement for the pub to be provided, and so it's fair to say that there are some shenanigans going on here!

Both were considered by Hilperton planning committee last night.

Wednesday December 01, 2004

The seemingly never-ending saga of housing at the Blue Hills site off of Devizes road, Hilperton rumbles on.

Friday November 12, 2004
Pegusas Planning Group will be holding a manned public exhibition.

An application is to be made to Chippenham magistrates for a licence.

Wednesday November 10, 2004
Despite there being no provision for a public house in the current 'master plan' for the local centre area, that hasn't stopped a 'speculative' application for an 'on' licence being made.

As the council won't tell us, try these for size.

Tuesday November 09, 2004
Despite putting down written questions for the full council meeting tomorrow night, WWDC is still playing the 'mushroom' game with both myself and Cllr. Oldrieve.

District Council loses patience.
