Haydon Farm proposed development refused by planning department S/19/0625

Earlier this year an application for planning was submitted to build homes and offices on part of Haydon End Farm, which is sited between Haydon End Lane, and Casterbridge Road/Lucetta Rise.

The proposed development was for 12 new homes and 2 office units (converting the old barn).

Having looked at the plans and spoken with local residents, questions and objections were raised.

My comments can be seen in the attached images, along with some of the plans.

Now I am glad to see this planning application has been rejected. However, I do not wish to see this land left empty forever, as the farm is no longer operational, it is a good location for houses, whilst keeping a good proportion of green space, the designs must be high quality and sustainable. They should fit with the existing surrounding homes.

I am certain we will see a future planning application for this land, at which point I will once again engage to ensure it meetings planning regulations and fits with the area.


Litter fears raised after bin is removed from bus stop in Haydon Wick

A resident contacted the Swindon Advertiser about a recently removed bin yesterday. The journalist got in touch to ask for my side of the story.

Haydon wick parish council is currently undertaking a bin review across the parish. Some bins are in a state of disrepair, some are too close together and some too far apart.

Part of the review is rationalising the 200+ dog waste bins across the parish, as dog waste is no longer classified as hazardous, so can be placed in a normal bin. We have many locations where a dog waste bin is right next to a normal waste bin, or in very close proximity.

I think this message has not been widely advertised so the parish have been making use of social media to inform our residents that dog waste can be placed in a normal bin, provided it is bagged.

Any bin that is removed is done so on the basis there is another within a few mins walking distance.

Haydon wick parish inspect all 200+ bins daily and they are emptied as required.The daily inspections have played a big part in rationalising the bins in the parish.

The plan is to reduce the number plastic bin bags, and also a lot of stopping and starting of the vans as they are inspected or emptied. This is just a part of the parish reducing its carbon footprint.

Another part of the inspections has shown we need to look at bins with no cover, and look at replacing those with newer ones with lids.
