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.

The changes made to this revamped application are merely cosmetic and it it remains a deeply flawed case for development.
View 10 reasons why this application needs to be rejected out of hand. If you objected before, you need to object again. This is not a "science Park", it will not bring jobs and it can be located on employment land already earmarked for future employment use.
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.
