Public to view business park plan
5:10pm Thursday 21st June 2012 in Chippenham
Plans for a new business park to the south of Chippenham are to be shown to the public for the first time.
Land at Showell Farm, near the Lackham College roundabout, has been earmarked by Crest Strategic Projects for a 40-acre employment site.
The land has been identified as a possibility for development by Wiltshire Council’s core strategy.
Official plans will be submitted to the council later this year, but the company is opening up the proposal for public scrutiny in the coming weeks.
Draft plans can be seen at Lackham House, at the college, on Wednesday, June 27, between 2pm and 8pm.
The developers will be on hand to answer questions from the public.
A Crest statement said: “Crest’s commitment to promoting this land, and to make it readily available for business uses, is a welcome move which should encourage confidence and investment and job creation in the area.”
