Planning permission granted - Q1 2020 Update

Wiltshire Council has granted outline planning permission for 65 new homes, along with detailed permission for 29 small employment units which will be available for rent or purchase by local businesses. 

Both permissions for the site were granted using delegated powers.

The application for this scheme included a policy requirement of 40% affordable housing along with pedestrian and cycle routes connecting the new homes with the proposed neighbourhood centre, existing village and wider area.

This is a extension to a 60 acre site for 450 homes and public open spaces that Catesby previously promoted and sold to Bovis Homes in 2014.

About the site

Catesby Estates plc & Guildhall Estates have been working on proposals for an extension to the existing Longhedge Village housing development.

Catesby Estates submitted a hybrid planning application to Wiltshire Council in January 2019 This consisted of an outline planning application for new homes, alongside a full detailed application for employment space. 

Guildhall Estates also submitted their applications for the local centre development including a neighbourhood retail parade, children’s nursey and care home facility

Our application included:

  • Reduced the number of homes proposed from 90 to 65
  • 40% Affordable Housing
  • Pedestrian and cycle routes will link the homes and proposed neighbourhood centre with the existing village and wider area. These combined with the existing Park and Ride facility, will help to minimise car usage
  • Existing hedgerows and trees will be supplemented with landscape buffers to retain rural character as well as providing a haven for local wildlife
  • 29 small light industrial units available for rent or purchase by local businesses.  A developer has been appointed to build these units
  • A local convenience retail parade along with a care home and a children's day nursery is proposed by Guildhall Estates

New Homes and Employment Space

The two neighbouring sites are located to the south west corner of the village, adjacent to the Bovis Homes development with access off the existing roundabout on the A345, with the local centre also being accessible off Rhodes Moorhouse Way.

The land is currently undeveloped and designated for new office development. However despite significant investment in marketing of the site over the last 2 years, there has been no demand and there is currently more than 172,000 sq.ft of vacant office space within a 10 mile radius of the site.
