The Battle for Coate Is Lost

The battle for land close to Coate Water Country Park has been lost, the planning decision, which went to appeal, has now been granted.

890 homes will be built on land at Commonhead and the decision to build the Great Western Hospital over a decade ago unlocked the land and made any planning refusal difficult to justify.

52,000 people did not want this, the MP for South Swindon did not want this, some majority councillors privately did not want this.

Apart from Persimmon, who in Swindon wanted this?

Swindon Centric Says ; The battle for Coate is over, but the battle for Swindon's other green fields is just beginning. Long term planning now demands voters become heavily involved and stand over the shoulders of Swindon Borough Council and it's councillors watching their every move and decision.

They work for us.
