As advised last month, your Neighbourhood Planning Group walked the seven sites already identified by Wiltshire Council as potential development areas, that were within or adjacent to the settlement area of Bromham. These sites varied in size from 0.08ha to 18.5ha. Each site will be initially assessed against the findings from the village housing needs survey (this was circulated within the Parish Magazine last summer).
The housing needs survey highlighted an initial requirement, above all other categories, for affordable homes. A total of 14 new homes has emerged as being the number currently being required within our Parish over the next three years. This number influences how the assessment of development sites will be managed for not only the current need, but also the potential capability for future need over 15-20 years’ time. As a result we would reiterate our call to any village landowners to make it known if they are considering the potential to develop some of their land, noting this call is Parish wide.
