A new Greggs could be set up on an industrial estate on the edge of Chippenham, according to a planning application recently submitted to Wiltshire Council.

The application requests permission to use a vacant unit on Bumpers Farm Industrial Estate to open a Greggs bakery.

With over 2,000 shops across the UK, Greggs employs around 20,000 people.

According to the application, this new branch would bring approximately 10 full-time equivalent jobs to the area.

Wiltshire Council’s decision deadline for this proposal is Friday, July 26.

Road, and the plans show that its patio area will get new paving and furniture.

The existing aluminium cladding on the east elevation is also set to undergo a colour change from dark brown to grey.

Over at Marlborough College, a planning application for an on-campus golf simulator has been given the green light.

Founded in 1843, the school is one of the most expensive in the country and the Princess of Wales is among its former pupils.

As a proposed donation from The Old Marlburian Golf Society, the simulator is set to be purchased from the brand Trackman.

Also submitted this week was a proposal for six new homes on land west of Easterton High Street, a village south of Devizes.

The applicant, Easterton Developments Ltd, is seeking to develop the “under-utilised greenfield site to deliver a high-quality housing development and public open space”.

Initially, a total of nine homes was suggested, but following feedback from planning officers, this number has been reduced.

The plans for the dwellings described them as “family-sized”, providing between two and four bedrooms.

The proposal states: “A fabric-first approach to design and renewable energy has been taken, and the scheme has been designed to meet a total reduction in carbon emissions by 54.06 per cent which far exceeds the building regulation requirements, and a positive step towards net Zero Carbon."

At the south of the site, the applicant suggests creating community green space that will serve the village as a whole.

The village has already expanded to the north in recent years, with the redevelopment of the Jam Factory site.

The decision deadline for this proposal is Friday, July 26.

Finally, Wiltshire Council has approved an application for a new public toilet block in Trowbridge.

It will be located in the centre of Town Park, near the children's play area, crazy golf and tennis courts.

The block will provide three loos and a cleaning store.
