  • This is a MASSIVE proposed development of 7,500 new homes. The land is largely being provided by Wiltshire council, who are proposing to sell off council farms, a much needed agricultural amenity.

  • In light of the publicly declared environmental emergency, now is NOT the time to be building houses and the related infrastructure on green field sites and unspoilt river landscapes. These are our best defence against climate change.

  • With climate change a very imminent and growing threat, we should NOT be building developments that will exacerbate flood risks. This year, the highest ever water levels were recorded. This poses a very real threat to homes.
