An appeal decision and a new application have been received.
The long running saga of Newland Homes and the Southfield site in Devizes Road, Hilperton appears to have run its course. The appeal was recently dismissed as the proposal was contrary to WWDC housing policies; a victory for the parish council and local common sense.

The other matter concerns Marshgate and the Paxcroft Mead local centre. Having recently won their appeal to build three more shops in the centre area, it would seem that they they now want to add 11 flats to the scheme - what about using the site area for medical facilities instead? If Marshgate wonder why they seem to get a bad press around here, perhaps it is this sort of approach that causes it!!
