Trowbridge housing scheme thrown out

March 5, 2018 9:03 AM

Another large housing development on the edge of the town has been refused by WC planners. The outline application by Taylor Wimpey for land between Ashton Road and Green Lane was refused for eight reasons: it would be against planning policy; it would impact protected species; accesses onto Ashton Road were poorly designed; as a site in the countryside it would have to be car-based so was 'unsustainable'; lack of a secondary school contribution; no archaeological assessment; impact on the appearance of the rural location; inadequate provisions for infrastructure.

The applicants could appeal the decision, though they'd be unlikely to succeed.
