Wiltshire Council contractors will be working in Holt from the 16 March for up to 10 working days. The footway alongside the Brook opposite the Village Hall will be resurfaced. This will involve the closure of the west entrance to The Midlands for 2/3 days. A diversion will be in place using the east entrance. Access to the Village Hall car park will be permitted. The footway alongside the Recreation Ground from Ground Corner to opposite the URC entrance will be reconstructed. This will involve a suspension of parking on that length of the street with 2 way light control.
Wiltshire Council have issued a notice of their intention to resurface the footway on the B3107 alongside the Recreation Ground and in The Midlands opposite the Village Hall starting on 5 January. The notice may be viewed here.
The presentation materials from the public consultation may be viewed here.
Our sub Groups have been working on the feasibility and practicality of implementing residents wishes .Please see the Neighbourhood Plan section of this website for an update.
The Highways and Streetscene Committee are currently looking at:
Completing a survey of the pavements in the village
Consulting with Wiltshire Council re traffic calming measures on B3107
Considering a new bus shelter outside the Three Lions
Extension of double yellow lines at Beckerley Lane
Researching Improvement of the Zebra crossing – warning flashing LED lights
Junction improvements – The Midlands/The Street/The Common – possibly in line with future Tannery Development
Guy Colle, the owner, and his development team will be on hand at the Tannery between 4pm and 7.30pm on Tuesday 17 October. Please make an effort to attend and, if you wish, make your views heard. Event details are here.
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.
