Wasdell Properties and Turleys have submitted a hybrid planning application for a gigantic B&Q / Symmetry Park style 50ft high, 33,500 sqm Warehousing and Distribution facility as part of a phase 1 full planning application that abutts and is accessed via Pack Hill with outline planning for a further 48,000 sqm of building space for another huge warehousing and distribution unit as well as some R&D facilities.
Phase 1 is a full planning application for a single large warehouse and distribution facility on one quarter of the site, on the southern boundary against Pack Hill and abutting the AONB. This 33,000m2 unit rises 15m into the sky and allows parking for 150 cars, includes a gatehouse and driver facility, with room for about 20 articulated lorries. Wasdell are looking for FULL planning to deliver this as part of phase 1 and clearly claim this will protect their 600 jobs. Access will be via Pack Hill just beyond the sharp cormer.
Phase 2 is outline permisison only and covers the other 3/4 of the site. It inlcudes a further 16,000sqm of Warehouisng and Distribution, plus 32,000sqm of building space suitable for R&D activity.
Their hybrid proposal includes:
The applicant has offered a cycle way to run parallel along packhill (part of the 30m buffer between the development and Pack Hill). And is offering to provide for some cycle way from Common head to the proposed development. They are offering to fund a new bus stop, but accept public transport is an issue.
SSPG is opposed to this development and ask residents of South Swindon to put in writing their oppostion to this proposal. SSPG will be holding meetings and objection writing clinics throughout January.
