The following are planning decisions have been made by Wiltshire Council, recently:

Bradford on Avon: Anthony Phillips has been granted planning permission to build a wooden workshop in his garden at the front of his home at the Elms, 16 A Ashley Road.

Corsham: Dave Wolf of 2 Alder Way, Bath has won planning permission to build a side extension onto a three-bed detached house at 40 Glebe Way, Corsham. The extension will be built behind the garage on the ground floor and over the garage on first floor to create an additional bedroom.

Devizes: The Pizza Express at 42 The Market Place has been awarded advertising permission for the installation of a new fascia sign, one new hanging sign and a new menu board outside of the restaurant.

Erlestoke: Rafe Colenso of Manor Farm in Lower Road had sought permission to demolish an existing building at the site and rebuild it to use as a house. Both the Listed Building Consent and full planning permission bids were rejected by Wiltshire Council’s planning officers.

In their report, the officer wrote that the proposed demolition would negatively impact the “historic fabric” of the building and said its replacement with a house “of no architectural merit”, as well as the change of use would be detrimental to the setting of the listed farmhouse.

They added: “There are no discernible public benefits to the scheme. There is insufficient information submitted with the application to enable the local planning authority to accurately assess the impact of the proposed development on the historic fabric of the building contrary to the requirements of the National Planning Policy Framework.

“There is no clear justification for the proposal provided in relation to the harm that the development is likely to create. There is no convincing justification put forward to suggest that any public benefit may outweigh the harm to the designated heritage asset.

“The demolition of these buildings will result in a loss of significance of the heritage asset and there is insufficient information to justify the demolition in this case.”

Bromham: Planning permission has been given to C Ryan to construct an extension to their garage at Pear Tree Cottage, 9 The Pound. The new extension will create a single-storey study and a first floor extension with a dormer feature. This will turn the space into a self-contained annexe ancillary to Pear Tree Cottage.

Edington: Chad Pike of has won a planning bid to change the use of land at Priory Farm, Inmead from residential to be used as holiday accommodation. The council did attach some conditions to its approval of the bid, including that the holiday accommodation should not be used more than 180 days in any calendar year. The condition continues: “During the aforementioned period no person shall occupy the holiday accommodation hereby permitted for a continuous period of more than 28 days in any calendar year and it shall not be reoccupied by the same persons within 28 days following the end of that period.”

Corsham: Frank Wakeman has been granted retrospective planning permission for an aluminum greenhouse in his back garden at 52 Beechfield Road. The bid was submitted after the greenhouse was put up without planning permission and following an enforcement enquiry.

Ramsbury: Rambsury Tennis Club has won a planning bid for two new tennis courts and an enclosure at Ramsbury Recreation Ground, Hilldrop Lane.

Trowbridge: Mr and Mrs Lewis Hulin of 24 Heddington Close have won planning permission to build rear extensions to their home and rebuilt the garage.
