Wasdell Properties have in the last 2 weeks submitted over 150 documents to support a revised hybrid application, consisting of a full planning application for a huge Warehouse and Distribution centre and an outline application for a Second Warehouse and a set of buildings which it claims will form a Science Park on a green field site at Inlands Farm.
Launched this Monday, the video shows footage of the proposed green field location for the Inlands Farm Industrial Park with 3D mock-ups of the development and explains how this proposed development with 15m high sides is not suitable as a location in the setting of an area of outstanding beauty and contravenes numerous planning policies. It also covers why the label "Science Park" is misleading and explores more suitable locations for the development.
Believe it or not its been a year. Join us for the first year AGM and get an update on the planning application.

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.
