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.

Don’t Be Fooled by Fake Wiltshire Council Calls

Reports are being received of a man calling local residents  claiming to be from Wiltshire /Council and conducting a survey about an accident the person they have ‘phoned has had.  Treat such calls with suspicion.

My Wiltshire App

The My Wiltshire App is available to members of the public wishing to report a problem – e.g. a street light that isn’t working, fly tipping, a pot hole, etc.  It can be downloaded from the Wiltshire Council website and is very easy to use.

If you would prefer to report things to me, I am still happy to pass your request to Wiltshire Council.
