Chippenham town councillors looked set to support the move of Westinghouse Cricket Club across town if plans to build 100 homes on its current site go ahead at a meeting tomorrow night.

Developers Linden Homes are proposing to build a mixture of two, three and four bedroom homes on the Westinghouse playing fields, with the option of moving the cricket club to Stanley Park.

A notice of motion submitted by town council leader Andrew Noblet to be discussed tomorrow read: “Chippenham Town Council supports improved sports facilities throughout the town.

“It therefore accepts the need to relocate Westinghouse Cricket Club to Stanley Park because it will provide a new and enhanced facility that is available to the community.”

If councillors agreed on the motion the town council would work with both Linden Homes and the cricket club if planning permission is granted.

Chairman of Westinghouse Cricket Club Christian Fry said the move would lead to a positive future for members.

“We are very much looking forward to the whole situation being resolved,” he said.

“We have been working hard with Linden for two-and-a-half years and what they are talking about will provide the club with some of the best facilities in the west.”

In June Linden Homes held a two-day consultation on the plans, and asked members of the public what facilities they would like the development to include.

A spokesman for the developers said the planning application is still being worked on and there is no fixed date for it to be submitted to Wiltshire Council.

“We are still taking in all the feedback we received from both members of the public and councillors during the consultation,” the spokesman said.

“We will certainly come back to the community at some point, and we will feed the new plans back to the people of Chippenham.

“With regards to the cricket club, even if the council refuses to grant planning permission on the site we hope they will still support the move across town to Stanley Park.”
