Decision Notice on Salisbury Road AONB Development

Please see the decision notice for the Salisbury Road AONB Development outlined in the attached document.Decision Notice

Judicial Review of Salisbury Road AONB Development


We have received an order from the Judge refusing HTC permission for Planning Statutory Review. This means that having reached permission stage of the JR we are unlikely to proceed any further. The Judge’s decision is to NOT allow the case to proceed to a full substantive hearing. If appropriate we can apply to renew the application to an oral hearing where our barrister can argue before a judge the reasons to grant permission. There would be further costs involved with this. This will be discussed at the Full Council meeting on Monday.

West Berkshire Council's Preferred Options Housing Site Allocations - Development Plan Document - Hungerford Area

As part of its preferred Options and Housing Site’s Development Plan Document, West Berkshire Council is recommending that 100 dwellings are constructed south of the town off Salisbury Road.  However, Hungerford Town Council believes there is a better option with less impact.  The preferred Town Council option 'pepper-pots', or spreads the dwellings around the town with some at the rail station area, Smitham Bridge Road and Eddington.

Comments were due by 24th December 2015, and we hope that many of you have submitted your views to be considered.

Please also find attached the report submitted by Ashburn Planning whose expertise in town planning is assisting Hungerford Town Council through this process.

Report by Ashburn Planning


Approx 200 Hungerford residents attended a public meeting to voice their views on the planning application for 119 houses on land south of Priory Road.  The meeting confirmed that the majority of those attended strongly object to the planning application with the main reasons being that it is 100% greenfield and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and alternative brownfield sites are available; the current road infrastructure is not adequate to accommodate the extra car journeys through the town;  lack of Primary School places;  pressure on an already stretched doctor's surgery as well as concerns voiced by residents adjoining the site regarding flooding.

After listening to the views of the residents, Hungerford Town Council put together their reasons of objection to West Berkshire Council which you can see attached.
