PLANS for a single-storey home in Hartmoor Road, Devizes, are being opposed by residents and the town council.

Resident Peter Shaw told a town council planning committee meeting on Tuesday night that a new application by Clenche Properties was the fifth time the developer had tried to build on land next to 48 Hartmoor Road.

Town councillors agreed to object to the proposed home saying it was out of keeping with the other houses in the street, would be over development of the site and the design was poor.

Coun Jane Burton said: “I think this design is absolutely atrocious.”
