Ward Councillor Surgery focus on Science Park!
This application is NOT for a Science Park!
WASDELL PROPERTIES are a vehicle for Wasdell Packaging to build a massive 49,000 sq.m industrial packaging and logistics facility in the countryside adjoining the nationally protected
Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
This is NOT an SBC proposal and is completely contrary to the adopted SBC Local Plan
After the Wanborough Parish Council meeting I will offer some suggestions for both questions and comments and would urge ALL residents to make their views known.
Whilst I support local business it should not be at the detriment of the countryside and local communities. This is a 40 hectare site!
40 hectares of employment land was already allocated for the 8,000 home 'New Eastern Villages' development and so far only one smaller unit has been built with the remainder still FULLY AVAILABLE - this is about industrial land on the cheap where it has not been planned. That's unacceptable!
Surprise Consultation event on a speculative plan for an industrial area on countryside in Wanborough - please note this is NOT an SBC proposal and is outside the SBC Local Plan
Stakeholder consultation on proposals for a Swindon Science Park
Wasdell Properties Ltd are holding a public exhibition of proposals to develop what they claim is a high quality, sustainable Science Park for Swindon.
They are proposing the Swindon Science Park will deliver 'much-needed facilities for research and development, and for high-tech manufacturing'.
The proposed site is at Inlands Farm, Wanborough, between The Marsh and Pack Hill in countryside and what is in landscape terms part of the setting for the Upper Wanborough village / Conservation area.
Please ensure your views are made clear by emailing the 'promoters' and copying me at email@example.com to ensure that I hear your views.
The event is on Wednesday 5th September 2018 at The Holiday Inn, Marlborough Road, Swindon SN3 6AQ and apparently residents will receive a leaflet.
The public session is open at any time between 3pm - 7.30pm.
There is free parking for visitors at The Holiday Inn (please register your car at reception).
The following link to the website is not active! To find out more about the proposals and give feedback visit the Swindon Science Park website at www.swindonsciencepark.co.uk from Thursday 6 September onwards. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org
PLEASE - ensure your views are heard. This is not deliverable at any time in the near future due to a number of site constraints, is inappropriate at the scale proposed and is in countryside adjoining the AONB (area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - a Nationally designated landscape area).
