Hilperton residents fear traffic chaos and loss of green space if homes bid gets go-ahead

This Is Wiltshire: Lee Davis and Shirley Sloper hold plans for the two homes planned along with fellow Marshmead residents angry at the proposal.

Building two three-bedroom homes alongside an existing semi-detached home will cause traffic chaos if it gets the go-ahead, say residents of Marshmead, Hilperton.

The plans, which have been submitted to Wiltshire Council, aim to maintain the existing property at 4 Marshmead and develop a pair of three bedroom homes alongside it, with rear gardens and parking.

However, residents along the road are unhappy with the application, which they say will include development on an open grass verge area along the west side of the plot owned by Wiltshire Council.

Residents argue that the proposed development is out of character with the homes along the rest of the road, while it would also exacerbate the problem of access along the street caused by parking.

Shirley Sloper said: “The developer has included the grass verge on the side of the house as part of the plans, despite the council taking on all the verges and greens around the road years ago.

“It is also not in keeping with the rest of the houses in the road and there is no reason why they should be allowed to build on that grass land, as I have spoken to the council and they say they don’t sell plots of land.”

Ralph Lane, who has lived in along the road for 42 years, said: “This should not go ahead, because it would cause further parking problems and will use up green space that has enhanced the area for years.”

Comments on the plan can be submitted to Wiltshire Council until today with a decision expected to be made in September.

Lee Davis, who lives with his wife and three children, said: “The homes the developer intends to build are out of character with the ones around it and this is going to have a detrimental impact us as immediate neighbours.

“It would also harm the valuable open green space currently enjoyed by the local residents and the over development of the site would make parking even worse and affect the access along the street.”

They have managed a really good Daily Mail sadface. I'd assumed they were objecting to the large Paxcroft Mead development which will result in hundreds of new houses, rather than a two house infill on their road.

I think the Nimbys should consider the fact that no developer would put in a planning application on council owned land. As for two new build semi's being built in the middle of a council estate, could someone with half a brain please explain how this could be detrimental to the existing council homes surrounding the area.

Sounds to me like too many people with nothing better to do than moan about something that is of no concern to them.

I cannot believe that the Wiltshire Times have even gone to the trouble of wasting their time on publishing this article! It is absolutely ridiculous to think that people are this concerned over a pair of semi detached houses in the middle of a council estate when loads of the properties surrounding it have had add on extensions on the side and rear of their properties! At least they will be new buildings and look neat and tidy! And as far as traffic chaos is concerned the planning law is two spaces for a 3 bed house so do you really think that a maximum of 4 extra cars on the estate is going to cause traffic chaos! Please! Some people just have nothing else better to do than moan about the most minor issues! We need extra housing so I hope they get passed!

Wiltshire deals with thousands of planning applications a year. The issue here is that a very minor build has been splashed across the paper with suitable sad-face photo of residents and the implication that a couple of houses will bring major inconvenience and traffic chaos. It is ludicrous nature of the report that has gained attention.

And that is breaking your heart.....how?
THEY live there - why are they not entitled to object?? And if one of them has managed to get the item in the local newspaper - what harm is it doing anybody?
The chances of them stopping the build? Nil.
"The ludicrous nature of the report" Why ludicrous?
Simply people objecting to something happening in their locality. I think they have every right. I think some of the given reasons are bordering on desperate. But I can see why they'd prefer a green area to bricks and tarmac.
Hope they've taken some photo's of the green - because it will soon be just a memory. Those houses will be built, I'm sure. And someone will be grateful that they were.

Time will tell WHAT??
That the residents DON'T have the right to protest? Wrong.
As I said previously - I don't think the residents will prevent the building of those houses.
But the local residents have EVERY right to object. EVERY right to protest against the build. EVERY right to prefer the green area as is.
Because that's how it is in the UK. It relates to freedom of speech and the right to protest.

So? I think YOU are overlooking the simple fact that they have the RIGHT to object.
Absolutely fine, let them waste people's TIME and MONEY!
As is their RIGHT - in law. Thankfully YOU don't get to decide what we can or can't protest about!!
LOL! Exactly.... time will tell.
Time will tell WHAT?? That the residents DON'T have the right to protest? Wrong. As I said previously - I don't think the residents will prevent the building of those houses. But the local residents have EVERY right to object. EVERY right to protest against the build. EVERY right to prefer the green area as is. Because that's how it is in the UK. It relates to freedom of speech and the right to protest. So, tell us - time will tell.........exactly what? (lol??!!)
I think i'm going to have to agree with lokalgirl - 'Sit down, have another glass of sherry and relax!!!!'.
