250 residents brave the cold to protest against the proposed science park

Around 250 residents of Wanborough, Liddington and other eastern villages gathered in Lower Wanborough to protest the proposed industrial development in Lower Wanborough.

Braving the cold weather, people marched to the proposed site at Inlands Farm They lined up to show the expected size of the warehouse and distribution centre of what is being billed as a 'Science Park.'

This was the first of many planned demonstrations by the recently formed South Swindon Protection Group who oppose the planned development adjoining Pack Hill and the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Local resident, Richard Angwin said, 'I have had a house in the village for nearly 15 years. It is a beautiful, tranquil place to live and this massive warehouse development will do nothing to enhance the area. We anticipate serious noise and light pollution as well as major access problems coming on and off the Commonhead Roundabout, the A419 and access to the M4.'
