I live up by Synwell Playing Field, and this morning received a resident letter from Framptons Chartered town planning Consultants. About an Application for residential development Comprising 89 Court Orchard and Holywell Farm Wotton under edge. 25 dwellings accessed from Court Orchard or an Alternative with access leading on to Synwell Road through the Playing Field with agreement of land owners of playing Field . ( It does state that No such agreement has been entered in to at present time). What do Wotton residents think of proposed plan.

It looks like the developers intend to create a road that runs through the Synwell playing field from Synwell lane or alternatively turn Court Orchard into a through road by flattening number 89.

Not great.

if you look at [external link] and scroll all the way down until you come to the picture, you can see how crazy the plan is. A road down the side of Synwell Playing Field? That probably won't happen. I can't imagine the SPFA agreeing to that. The other option is to knock down 89 Court Orchard, but not only that, to have a through route from the end of Valley Road.

Aside from those crazy road plans, the layout of the houses looks really nice actually. Nicely spaced out with gardens, trees, footpaths.

All those against the Holywell development get behind the campaign to support those against the development behind the fire station because if this is passed the Holywell farm development will put another application in and probably win given the similarities.
The Gazette is currently running a vote on for/against on their web site
