Plans for nearly 100 new homes on the site of an old ambulance station in Wiltshire are still under consideration.

A proposed scheme to build 95 residential properties on the site of the former Chippenham ambulance station was first submitted in 2020, after the service announced its intention to relocate to Bath Road the following year.

But three years later the future of the brownfield site, which is mostly vacant and has since been fenced off, remains undecided.

Wiltshire Council told this paper that there remains no new decision deadline for the plans, and that the delay in the process was due to a number of revisions to the development since it was first proposed.

A request was previously made for the planning application to be called in for debate at the area board, but the council says this has now been withdrawn.

If approved, the most recent designs put forward by developers Persimmon Homes lays out a plan for a “high quality residential development”, with a mix of one-bed apartments and houses boasting as many as four bedrooms.

All the vacant buildings currently on the site would be demolished to make way for new housing.

Several revisions have been made to the plans since their inception, including upgraded access, footpaths and cycle ways, and revised parking strategies.
