johanna ailano started this petition to Wiltshire District Council planning dept

Environmental impact, local residence impact and loss.

135 houses with additional 50 car carpark in a small village at the base of the Laverstock Downs Salisbury.  

DISADVANTAGED VILLAGE

They are trying to put the planning through during a pandemic without fair objections being heard. They have made the Parish meeting Zoom only, that discriminates against people that are not tech savvy and cant go to neighbours because of shielding. A physical public meeting is not possible at this time.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

I moved here as a child and the water meadows did not have so much water as it does now. They built a similar project opposite in the 1990's and the flooding increased.  The houses in Elm Close Bishops Mead and Riverside Close are already at risk because we are on a flood plain. In recent years Riverside Close houses have flooded. The huge area not allowing water seepage into the ground will cause even more flooding of the water meadows the river has this year broken the banks and I had a flood alert only last week. 

Its a beautiful area already struggling with rat run traffic from the main road avoiding traffic lights, and three Senior and one junior school collections cause enough problems. Now they want to add 135 houses that will bring builders and heavy plant machinery plus when built additional cars. The immediate building impact of noise dust and dirt for residents and school children.

A conglomerate land owner bought arable land cheaply and stand to make huge profits turning it into building land without thought for residents!!

Please help us bring this to the attention of the public that Wiltshire District Council are using the Pandemic to their own advantage to railroad this through and making a big profit in the process without thought for the environment or villagers!
