TBH - the proposed development looks perfectly reasonable with a large amount of green open space that Leighton Park and Westbury Leigh always needed.


The extra population will be a bit of a boost to the church, shop and community hall ...

My Fear Baldy, that is the start of a much greater plan,
 to concrete over with developments, the Westbury Leigh side of Westbury, and the loss of Biodiversity that would follow it.

There is no such "plan".


There is simply doubt about the 5-year development pipeline and opportunistic developers are putting in applications on unallocated land where they think they can prove sustainability. I would think the other land south of Westbury Leigh and towards Old Dilton is safe, though that other field south of Leighton Park by Warminster Road looks very vulnerable at present.

I made Andrew Murrison aware of this proposal this morning, and this is his reply.

Thank you. I’m not aware of this proposal but last time I looked N&W Wilts area had a more than five year supply so it should fail. If it’s dipped below there’s a vulnerability that the developer may seek to exploit.
It’s important objections are lodged on the WC planning site against the application number.
