Thrings, Solicitors, are holding an exhibition re proposals for a residential development at Manor Farm, Holt on Monday 26th October 2015 between 3.00pm and 7.00pm at the URC Hall.

The Parish Council and the neighbourhood Plan team have posted representations to the Planning Inspector with reference to the Gladman appeal. The representations may be viewed here – Holt Parish Council Representation to the Planning Inspector and here Holt Neighbourhood Plan response to Appeal
Gladman Developments Ltd lodged appeal reference APP/Y3940/W/15/3063775 on 10 July against Wiltshire Council’s refusal of outline planning permission for up to 98 dwellings on land south of Melksham Road Holt.
The Parish Council has recently been approached by a Landhold Capital Ltd who have purchased 2 fields to the east of Leigh Road. A map, their proposal and the PC response can be found here.
Wiltshire council have refused permission for the housing development proposed by Gladman Ltd on land off the Melksham Road. The key reasons for the refusal may be found in the Decision Notice. The notice also states the following “As the proposal is in clear conflict with the policies of the up to date development plan,
for the reasons set out above the applicant is advised that the Council believes that any appeal against this decision would have no reasonable prospect of succeeding. Accordingly, the applicant is advised that if an appeal is submitted the Council will be making an application for a full award of its costs incurred in dealing with the appeal, based on substantive grounds.” Detailed examination of the application is given in the Planning Officer’s Report.
The proposed 100 home development on land adjacent to Great Parks remains with the Council planning department. Should the planning officer be minded to approve the proposal, it will be passed to the full planning committee for a decision at a public meeting. Eighty residents have written in opposition and the Council’s Spatial Planners and Drainage officers have come out strongly against. Our local MP, Duncan Hames, has written opposing the proposal. Our local councillor, Trevor Carbin, is clear in his opposition and believes that the proposal will be rejected.
