Wroughton: Significant changes are proposed to a splendid Grade II-listed late Regency villa in Wroughton - but only to restore the structure of the building.

Derek and Georgina Scott own Brompton House at 16 The Pitchens in the village south of Swindon, which dates to 1835.

They have asked for permission for numerous changes including installing an iron gate, reinstating cellar windows, new and replacement, changes to the kitchen diner to move a lavatory, and replacing of failing floor joists and joists in the ceiling.

The Scotts' application says the building suffered damage during a period of being let out because of water getting into the building. Removing plaster from the walls to allow them to dry showed damage and changes to the structure after alterations in the early 20th century

It says: "The aim of the work is to secure the property structurally, prevent water ingress, improve its appearance, its utility and flexibility, natural lighting, thermal performance and reduce its carbon footprint. The overall approach aims to improve the contribution the property makes to its setting without degrading its significance."

Upper Stratton: Developers who are working to convert three office blocks in Kembrey Business Park want to change the cladding on at least one of them. Flower Estates already has permission to convert Cherry Orchard North into 52 flats and is looking for permission to convert two of the block's sister buildings into more apartments.

For the first building it has applied to cover the exterior in new cladding in shades of dark gay orange-brown and salmon, saying the appearance will better match buildings in the area.

Bishopstone: The owner of a house in the village south east of the town wants to do his bit to help the borough get to zero carbon. Jon Richardson who owns Garston's Mead in Church Lane has applied to put up 14 solar panels on the south-east facing roof of the property.

Great Western Hospital: Bosses at Swindon's hospital want to put up an advertising hoarding on the site to explain how it will address the challenges it is facing. The application for permission emphasises no commercial adverts will be shown, rather information on how the trust which runs the hospital is moving things forward to deal with the doubling of demand for its services since it was built.

Stratton St Margaret: A Grade II-listed 18th century farmhouse, which has most recently been used as council offices can become the focus of a new 'farmyard style' development.

Developer William Arthur Property has been given permission to turn The Limes, at 21 Green Road into a luxury four-bedroom house. It can knock down the modern extensions to the original farmhouse used as offices and build another five houses on the site.

The five new houses will be built around the car park behind the main house to create what the developers call a “communal courtyard”. A new five-bedroom house will be built next to The Limes facing Green Road, and two sets of two semi-detached houses arranged around the central area will be added

Rodbourne: Shoppers looking for sporty, preppy American clothing will see some changes soon. Tommy Hilfiger which has a store in the designer outlet village has been given permission to make changes including refitting the whole store and painting the original Victorian columns.

North Star: New College Swindon now has two permissions to build kennels and pens for animals as part of its facility to train vets at its North Star Campus. Another plan for similar enclosures in a different area of the site was approved in summer.

Stratton St Margaret: Aldi in Hobley Drive has been given permission to extend delivery hours from 7am to 10pm to 5am to 11pm. The German supermarket chain originally wanted unlimited delivery hours but scaled backs its application after discussion with planning officers.
