Have your say…

Several readers on our Facebook page have said that they are having trouble finding the right place to voice their objections to Planning Application 18/10035/OUT; this is the plan for up to 65 houses on the field between Church Lane and Southwick Country Park.


Here is a link directly to the right page.

The comments box can be enlarged from the tag in its bottom right hand corner and you get 32,000 characters (about 5,000 words) to have your say. You can copy and paste into the box from most document formats but we haven’t been able to make it upload photographs yet.

The request for personal information looks more intrusive than it is; you need only fill in the boxes marked with a red asterisk. Don’t forget to press the submit button.

Wiltshire Council’s website is a dreadful place; there is always somebody digging up the pipes or knocking holes in the walls. There are whole days when it speaks only in code. For the sake of the park, be brave; find  the right page and have your say.

For those who don’t wish to comment online here is an address: Development Management, Wiltshire Council, County Hall, Bythesea Road, TROWBRIDGE, BA14 8JN;
a telephone number: 0300 456 0114;
and an email address: developmentmanagement@wiltshire.gov.uk

    1. We will be objecting both as an organisation (FoSCP) and as a set of agitated individuals. I think we need to put the appropriate address and phone number up in the park; a lot of our park users are of an age group that might find the Wiltshire Council’s website intimidating.
