Development to create over 350 jobs

This Is Wiltshire: Trowbridge mayor John Knight Trowbridge mayor John Knight

Plans for a £46m development of the former Bowyers site in Trowbridge have gained approval from Wiltshire Council tonight. Councillors voted 10 to one in favour of proposals during the Western Area Planning Committee meeting held at County Hall, in Trowbridge.

The project, led by developer Prorsus, will see a Morrisons supermarket, a petrol station, a leisure facility, two non-food shops, a pub, two restaurants and two cafes built on the derelict site.

Angus Horner, managing director of Prorsus said: "The development team thanks all those local people who have taken an interest in this project and have lent their support to further regeneration in Trowbridge."

During the meeting, councillors spoke in favour of the project which will create over 350 jobs.

Trowbridge Mayor John Knight, who sits on the committee, said: "It was important that the needs of local people were listened to and this is a good day for the people of Trowbridge."

Despite permission being granted the plans will now need to be ratified by the Sectary of State.

Last year, the developer submitted a similar plan which included a cinema which was rejected by the committee.

Prorsus appealed that decision, later submitting this reserve plan, minus a cinema, agreeing to delay their appeal while it was considered.

It is unclear whether Prorsus will now pursue their appeal.

Excellent.
Especially regarding the petrol station - didn't think Tesco would have "allowed" that one to go through.

Although i find it difficult to get excited about another supermarket superstore the filling station is most welcome Thankfully the original application is now dead and buried as a second cinema was never wanted or sustainable Well done to wilts council , planning , and most of our councellors for not caving in to half wits on pointless demonstrations.

Good news indeed it seems, but in earlier times before the forthcoming local elections in May, I think it may have been refused, because of the existing problems with the Bythesea junction with Stallard Street.

After the protests last time, how many Councillors due for re election soon, would be prepared to refuse it again?
I am sure the developers know that.

If the proposal had included a footbridge between the ASDA carpark and the Gateway I would favour it more. As it is pedestrians are the main cause of the junction problems.

There is a long way to go yet and the Sec of State may not accept it anyway. He will then take the blame, not Wiltshire Council.

GP & JK GOT IT RIGHT
Both of these councillors have been in favour of this revised scheme, but still prefer the original.
If the 300 strong protest march didn't take place last year this revised scheme would never be happening.
Yet to find out is Prorsus will go ahead with this revised scheme or may still go for the appeal in 2 weeks time!

Am I missing something? If the proposal is accepted by Wiltshire, why would it need to go to the Secretary of State? Surely that only happens when a plan has been refused and the proposer appeals.

Formality Micheal simply formality.

Its admirable that you still have hope for the cinema. The delay on the original appeal wasn't for too long - only a few weeks I think - correct me if I'm wrong.

Anyways - that doesn't leave long for any would be surprise to be revealed now does it?

Just a few more weeks and we'll know for sure once and for all huh. If not sooner.

A 100 or so people standing in the street saying we want something doesn't mean its viable.

The Bowyers site does overlook a scrap yard - atleast the Peter Black site has the prospect of being developed.

I'm looking at this from the perspective of an ex-Trowbridge resident. I moved out of the town just before the turn of the century, due to work commitments.

When I visit my parents in Trowbridge, which is most weekends, do I see an attractive town with good facilities, shops, open spaces and things to do? Do I see an opportunity to open a business in the town?

No, I don't. I see a derelict factory with a stinking dog-sh*t littered alleyway running through it - I see empty shops - I see the usual bookies/estate agents/takeaways/che
ap booze shops.

Some nice new pubs have re-opened - Stallards/Rose and Crown and Kings Arms, which is a refreshing change.

I view Trowbridge as the town time forgot - it used to have a popular swimming pool - it used to have a decent BMX track, people used to sail model boats on the lake in the park - the Council sold the pool and BMX track to Tesco, and nothing of similar quality has replaced it.

Trowbridge used to have fun events in the summer - the Bed Push, the Flower Show, the Lawn Mower race at Staverton, the Fun Run, I'm sure there's more I've forgotten.

Every time somebody tries to invest in this town, they get rejected. The Council does not listen - well, if it does, it chooses to ignore the voice of the residents.

I agree that Trowbridge does not need 2 Cinemas ( in fact, with online streaming of movies etc, i'd be suprised if one will last more than a year), but it also doesn't need another supermarket.

The Bowyers site should be developed into Wiltshires premium leisure facility - a fun swimming pool, bowling alley, climbing wall, artificial football pitches, BMX track, cycle/walking paths along the river, linking to the path which goes to the canal etc - leisure facilities that will make the town a desirable place to visit and invest. Leisure facilities that young and old, rich and poor can enjoy. Leisure facilities that promote health, fitness and fun, not stuffing your face, sitting on your backside and getting drunk.

So I welcome the acceptance of these plans, even though it includes another supermarket and the leisure space appears to be restaurants/pubs. But it's a step in the right direction for the town, and will hopefully encourage more investment for improved community leisure facilities and better quality shops in the future. I hope it means more employment for local people and a better quality of life for all.

The increased footfall into the town will benefit existing businesses too - Trowbridge is a small town - it only takes 10-15 mins to walk from Bowyers to the other side of the town centre - and the quickest way is to walk up Wicker Hill or through The Shires, so existing businesses should see more trade if this goes ahead.

I think it's an exciting time for Trowbridge - but it could be so much better - the potential is enormous.

If it all works out, then maybe I, and others like me, will want to return.

Until then, I'm out.

Wouldnt it be nice if the council would give Asda in Trowbridge planning permission to extend there shop. Then we could have a George dept, maybe electricals, Customer toilets, cafe etc. Just a suggestion as a loyal customer. Instead of bringing yet another supermarket to compete. Trowbridge has enough of them. Maybe help to long term existing companies would be beneficial for this town too.
