Planning January 2020


The biggest news is the launch in the near future of the Preservation Trust Design Guide which has been commissioned by the Planning Committee and written by eminent conservation architect Harry Whittaker.


The meeting was pleased to note that the unsightly waste bins had been removed from the entrance to the Kingston Mills development and that there are proposals to enhance this area.


Some members of the committee had visited Christchurch to look at proposals to carry out redevelopment and refurbishment works of its historic features to encourage great use of the building for parish and community use. 


We considered current planning applications and made representations to Wiltshire Council over our concerns about two applications, one for a new dwelling and the other for extensions to a dwelling.


Town Trail

The town trail is  full of historic snippets and based on the Trust’s plaques. The full trail takes about two hours, but you can easily dip into bits of it. The trail was designed by Mike Shearing. Jointly published by the Trust and the Museum, it was part funded by Bradford on Avon Community Area Network.

If you want to see or download the trail free, there is a printer-friendly A4 version available on this site on the Publications page.
