Strategic Land Allocation- Information from the Parish Council

We felt that you should know that Wiltshire Council have sent us the attached map for our Village. This shows 7 sites which have been registered by their owners to ‘make Wiltshire Council aware that the land proposed might be suitable’ for future residential development. Their inclusion in the long term strategic plan does not, we are told, give this land any preference at all in the planning process.

The Parish Council has forwarded its outright and total opposition to these sites. They are all outside our residential boundary and are not required to satisfy future housing needs in Oaksey.’
