A planning application was submitted last June for the site in Salisbury.

Wiltshire Council have approved a planning application for the building of 640 residential homes and a primary school on land just south of Netherhampton Road

The authority had set out plans for the houses to be built almost 3 years ago, holding consultations with residents and businesses in that time. 

People were able to also let the council know their views when the application was submitted, with 263 letters being sent in. 

The plan is somewhat controversial, with 73% of people at a consultation event in February 2019 saying they did not support the proposals.

Work has now been given the go ahead, as long as a number of conditions are met. 

Many of these include having more details, such as street lighting and a written programme of archaeological investigation, submitted to and approved by the Local Planning Authority. 

The development will take place on land just south of Netherhampton Road

Bovis Homes are behind the plans which also includes a local centre, a country park and a play area.

The development is part of wider plans by the council to provide 42,000 new homes across Wiltshire by 2026

This includes over 100 homes near to Salisbury District Hospital, which had an application submitted in January of this year. 

No date has been announced yet for when work will begin, and you can read more about the plans by visiting unidoc.wiltshire.gov.uk.
