Earthline Appeal Dismissed!!!

Earthline Appeal Dismissed!!!

Update from Cllr Cathy Martyn
Along with my fellow Borough Councillors for Wroughton & Wichelstowe – Brian Ford & David Martyn – and Councillors Jenny Jefferies & Lawrence Elliott from Chiseldon, I am pleased to announce that the Planning Inspector has dismissed Earthline’ s planning appeal. This means that Earthline have lost their appeal.
It’s clear that the Inspector listened to residents’ comments and concerns about the impact of both the HGVs and the additional car journeys on the safety of our local roads and pavements.
Thanks must go to the Swindon Borough Council Officers who appeared at the Public Inquiry, and especially to the residents who got together and provided information and evidence, and who attended the Public Inquiry with us, both in person and online – we couldn’t have done it without you. It was a great team effort.
Thanks also to Cllr Jenny Jefferies who set up the residents’ group in Chiseldon and opened it up to welcome all residents affected, including those from Wroughton & Uffcott.
We also had support from both Wroughton Parish Council & Chiseldon Parish Council, and Sir Robert Buckland QC MP.
