Keep South Swindon Rural
No to any Industrial Park
No to light, noise and air pollution
The appeal dates are set. There will be a VIRTUAL public enquiry by the Planning Inspectorate that runs from the 15th June for 3 weeks. The appeal will consider the economic benefits of the speculative development and balance them against the harm to our rural life, impact on the environment and the AONB and consequential urbanisation of South Swindon.
What will happen and how can you help?
The SSPG is currently reviewing the 150 or so documents submitted with the new Science Park application. Please download the objection template leaflet or complete our online objection letter now.

At Wanborough Village Hall, Monday 18th November at 7.30 pm
Local protest group, the South Swindon Protection Group, today called for the classifications for the proposed land development in Lower Wanborough to be thoroughly re-evaluated.John Warr, the Group’s Chair, went further: “The South Swindon Protection Group has commissioned expert advice in the form of a number of technical reports on the many aspects of this application that trouble us. We have identified over 20 significant flaws in this proposal, which demonstrably flies in the face of the Swindon Borough Council’s own published ‘Local Plan 2026’, which sets out their intentions for Swindon developments for the next 7 years. This distasteful, cynical, speculative application should never have reached even this far in the planning process, and the Council’s planners should reject it forthwith.”
The central plank of the applicant’s proposal is that this is to be a “Science Park”. The Employment Land Report (ELR), relied upon in the Inlands Farm planning application, specifically refers to the UKSPA definition for “What is a Science Park”.
The SSPG are aware of Wasdell’s packaging and storage operation in West Swindon and our look at the plethora of documentation could not find any evidence that the operations outlined in the application resembled anything like that of a Science Park.
