WROUGHTON residents will get the chance to look at plans for a new housing development on part of Berkeley Farm this afternoon.

The proposal, which has yet to be formally put to the council, would see the construction of 100 homes, with access gained from Swindon Road.

Initial plans will be available to view and members of the development team will be on hand to speak to visitors and answer their questions.

Those who attend will have the chance to feed back on the proposals and where possible Ainscough Strategic Land, who are leading the scheme, will incorporate views and ideas into the final proposal, expected to be submitted in the summer.

Paul Martin, managing director at ASL, said: “The Berkeley Farm development has the potential to provide high quality homes sensitive to the needs and wants of the local community. The scheme will also help to secure the future of the Berkeley Farm for the next generation, as well as creating new jobs.

“We’re very keen to hear the local public’s views on our initial plans and to work with the community to create a development that is in keeping with the village. We would welcome the opinions and thoughts of all local residents, businesses and those who are interested in the future of Wroughton.”

The exhibition and consultation event is between 3pm and 7.30pm at The White Hart, High Street.
