What are your neighbours up to? The following are planning applications, decisions and appeals from Wiltshire, recently:

Warminster: Autoglass has applied to build pods in the Morrisons car park.

Under the company’s plans, it will construct single-storey pods and lightweight canopy within the car park of Morrisons on Weymouth Street.

Trowbridge: A former cattery and kennels will be transformed into two houses.

Mr and Mrs McColgan applied to Wiltshire Council to divide the former Steeple Ashton Kennels & Cattery on Larks Leaze, Edington Road into two houses.

The applicants will also be able to remove all of the buildings associated with the former kennels.

Crudwell: Plans for a replacement house and garage in Murcott have been rejected by Wiltshire Council.

Neville Hughes of Murcott Farm had applied to replace the bungalow at his farm.

However, officers refused Mr Hughes planning permission, stating: “The proposal is located within the open countryside where new residential development is not permitted unless it satisfies the exception policies set out within the development plan.

“The existing building is not incapable of retention, nor is it unsightly or out of character with its surroundings and as such the proposal does not comply with Wiltshire Core Strategy.”

Cleverton: A planning appeal has been launched over Wiltshire Council’s refusal to grant planning permission for an American-style barn.

Rosa Callen of 2 Paddock House in Great Somerford had put in a bid to build an American-style barn with a concrete base at land South of Crows Nest Farm.

In rejecting the bid, planning officers said: “No information on safety measures for the horses have been supplied by the applicant and should the horses be left unattended in an unsecured location given the significant distance of the applicant’s dwelling from the application significant security risk through potential theft will arise.

“Consequently, an approval of the development proposed will result in a requirement for a permanent presence on site and thereby an application for a new dwelling in the open countryside would create an unsustainable pattern of development.

“The location of the applicant’s dwelling in Great Somerford and the proposed development site in Cleverton would generate increased traffic movement above the current normal use of the site which would be by private vehicle and this is considered to and this lead to an unsustainable development.”

Mrs Callen has now put in a planning appeal against the decision.

Any interested parties who wish to comment on the appeal must contact the planning inspectorate by November 10, 2021.

Easteron: Planning permission has been given to build a new house with garage in Easterton.

Wiltshire Council has granted planning permission for Naomi Toogood to demolish the existing house at 8 Easterton Sands and in its place construct a new house and garage.

Lower South Wraxall: Former stables will soon be demolished and be replaced with an annexe.

Mr Digges of Upper Farm in Lower South Wraxall has won planning permission to demolish existing stables and outbuildings at the property.

In place of the stables, Mr Digges will be allowed to build a single-storey extension to annex to form an independent three-bedroom house.

Marlborough: A planning appeal has been launched over Wiltshire Council’s refusal to grant retrospective planning permission for a garage.

Tony Kiernan The Coach House, Back Lane in Marlborough had applied for planning permission for an already built garage at his property.

However, planning officers at the council rejected Mr Kiernan’s bid stating that the development caused harm to the setting of the listed building and the overall Marlborough Conservation Area.

They added: “Whilst this harm is considered to amount to less than substantial harm in the context of the National Planning Policy Framework, no public benefits have been identified which are considered to outweigh the harm to the heritage assets identified.”

Any interested parties who wish to comment on the bid must contact the planning inspectorate within four weeks.
