SBC - Highworth have no say in the matter even though it is in their area and North Wilts have nothing to do with it at all.

Two pieces in today's Swindon Advertiser for information:

1. Tonight sees a meeting of Highworth Town Council to discuss the proposed Powerfork Ranch. It will be online at 7pm (BST for the disasporans on here). See highworthtowncouncil.gov.uk

2. SBC has cancelled all planning meetings for the rest of the year due to insufficient business to discuss. Although this is "likely to change".

How delightfully tin pot, if Swindon seriously doesn't have any development proposals that they can see needing to go committee between now and the end of the year then the borough is knackered!

Just looked at the agenda it covers everything; the equestrian facility, houses and the training ground. Donít hold much hope for the meeting itself though as having witnessed a few planning meetings on zoom already they have all been a clusterfuck without exception.

Did anyone hear the result I got booted out of the zoom call due to tech issues?

I didn't watch as what they conclude is broadly irreverent, however, I will make a guess that they object.

As they cannot 'turn it down' any more than you or I can, as I say essentially irrelevant.

Arenít they pretty much irrelevant though and just a necessary step with SBC being the only decision that matters?

Wasn't a dig at you, but in the big scheme of things their opinion matters as much as yours or mine!

Yep, they have no authority when it comes to Planning matters.  They simply act as a sounding board and share their thoughts with SBC - who then pretty much ignore them.

I note that the club have submitted (and the Councillors advisors confirmed) that the residential element is not viable with full policy compliance which is pretty par for the course (no pun intended), most of the updated docs seem to relate to the horse facility application, but again this seems technical rather than substantial.

Looking at the Council's agenda from yesterday it seems to be some manner of re consultation comment, which as next to nothing has changed on the revised site plan submitted seems something of an irrelevance as nothing will have changed since their earlier objection of late 2018. I suspect that the Council have been seeking additional supporting technical evidence which has now been provided so not a great deal has actually changed.

The problem is that Power is just too small time..... we've seen recently how it is done, with Jenrick, the Housing Minister and Desmond pornographer and ex owner of Express, throw the Tories a few grand, and go to a few fundraisers, and get the Minster to change his own decision, thus saving yourself 45 mill in tax.
