Local protest group, the South Swindon Protection Group, noted that the two applications to develop industrial land in Lower Wanborough have together caused 1750 responses from Swindon residents, over 80% of which were objecting to the proposal. The Group has repeatedly called for the revised application for a proposed land development in Lower Wanborough to be thrown out by SBC’s Planning Committee.
The South Swindon Protection Group, representing over 600 Swindon residents, submits its formal objection to the Inlands Farm development. John Warr says "we are pleased that over 500 residents and 23 statutory consultees have already sent in objections to the proposed Science Park. Our objection, will provide extra weight in dismantling the economic case for this development and exposing this application for what it is. A speculative application on a site that didn’t even qualify for consideration in Swindon’s local plan and on planning grounds alone should be dismissed out of hand". The SSPG is supportive of economic growth in Swindon and wish Wasdell all success in growing its business on one of the plethora of suitable sites already earmarked for development in the 2036 local plan.
Local protest group, the South Swindon Protection Group (SSPG), today called for the revised application for a proposed land development in Lower Wanborough to be thrown out by Swindon Borough Council (SBC)’s Planning Committee. Proposal riddled with deficiencies and the most breathtaking fantasy is their claim on the jobs
Statutory Consultees are unanimously objecting to the Inlands Farm application. Read a sample of the key concerns expressed, from Robert Buckland MP, CPRE, Wilts and Berks Canal Trust, Historic England and others.
Warehousing operations generally employ low numbers of low skilled, often zero hours, staff. This development will not bring “hundreds of new jobs” to Swindon. As confirmed in their press release in April, if Wasdell were to occupy this site it will be “to locate all our Swindon businesses on one site”. This would mean closing 3 existing sites in Swindon and relocate their workforce to the new site. Far from creating new jobs it could lead to some redundancy as they would achieve some economies of scale.
