North Wiltshire MP, James Gray, has spoken of his delight that both Marsh Farm, Royal Wootton Bassett, planning appeals have been rejected.

In response to this announcement, Mr Gray said:

“I strongly welcome the good news that the application and appeals to develop the land at Marsh Farm have been rejected. I have long been opposed to these plans which would destroy the Wiltshire countryside and take business away from the thriving Royal Wootton Bassett High Street. Developments such as those proposed at Marsh Farm threaten independent shops and businesses and detract from community spirit.

We must never become an outskirt of Swindon and I will continue to fight to preserve our countryside and strong rural communities here in North Wiltshire.”
