Trees in The Midlands

The Parish Council is aware of some concern in the village relating to the future of the trees alongside the Brook opposite the Village Hall. The trees belong to Wiltshire Council. There is one Red Hawthorn which is nearest the junction and three flowering cherry,  which are a non-native, short lived species. The fourth flowering cherry died and was removed some years ago being replaced by a silver birch which also died. The three remaining cherry trees have been examined by an arboriculturalist who has declared them all to be in a state of terminal decline. Cracks, lesions and dead wood can be seen.

The developer of the Tannery was obliged to propose improvements to the junction of the Midlands and the B3107. The initial design involved the loss of the parking spaces alongside the trees.
Following objection by the PC, a re-design was made proposing a parking refuge where the cherry trees now stand. The hawthorn tree will remain and, at the request of the PC, a new stand of trees
will be planted along the verge on the Village Hall side of the road. All of this has been in the public domain for more than a year and was discussed at the village meeting in April 2018.
We hope to have details about the programme for the development in the near future.

New Plans for Holt Tannery Site

The site owners, J&T Beaven, are formulating a new regeneration proposal for the Tannery Site in partnership with the Glove Factory Studios and a new housing development partner, HAB Housing. This follows the expiry of a 5-year option with a previous land promoter, and the subsequent withdrawal of the 2016 outline planning application.
The new draft scheme for the site comprises: the comprehensive restoration of the existing heritage buildings (for offices, workshops and flexible multi-use space) which will be managed by the Glove Factory Studios; and circa 43 new homes with on-site car parking. A full planning application is being targeted for submission by the end of the year, with the aim of starting the development in Autumn 2018.
J&T Beaven, the Glove Factory Studios, and HAB Housing will be presenting their draft proposals to the community at an open ‘drop-in’ event that will take place onsite at the Tannery from 3:30pm to 7:30pm on Tuesday 17th October. Please do come along to see the potential of these beautiful existing buildings and to give your feedback.
