West Knoyle Parish Council

Parish Clerk – Mrs. L. C. Wood

Minutes of a Parish Council meeting held on Tuesday, 14th January 2020 at 7.30 p.m. in West Knoyle Village Hall.

Present:  Mrs. J. Brockway (Chairman), P. Yates (Vice-Chairman), Tony Davis, A. Filleau, M. Randall
Also:  Wiltshire Cllr. G. Jeans, P. Coward and one other.

The Chairman convened the meeting by opening the public session and reading out the notices relating to GDPR and recording meetings.

No members of the public wished to speak about any agenda items but the Clerk was asked to find out why there was a large hole that had been dug in the layby outside the Village Hall which was taped off and fenced off with Ringway orange safety barriers but had been left like this for approximately 5 weeks.

Apologies for absence – none received.

121.  Planning  (All applications can be viewed on Wiltshire Council’s website http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/environmentandplanning/planninganddevelopment/planningapplicationssearchonline/planningsearch.htm  – and type in the relevant application number)

  1. Applications to consider at the meeting:


Application Ref:          19/10302/FUL (Revised Plans)
Application for:           Full Planning
Proposal:                     Demolition of Barn 2 and erection of 1 no. dwelling and associated works
At:                                Oxleaze Farm, West Knoyle.  BA12 6AE

Members felt that this new-build would look aesthetically more pleasing than the barn conversion proposals and were pleased that the revised plans had addressed their previous concerns relating to the roof ridge height and the glass gable end, which has been revised to more modest patio doors and windows.  The Clerk confirmed that the proposed roofing material on the revised plans was slate tiles.  RESOLVED to recommend approval of the application.  RESOLVED to request that Wiltshire Cllr. Jeans ‘call in’ this application if it transpires that the planning officer is likely to recommend this application for refusal.  Proposal made by the Chairman and carried with a unanimous vote. 

Meeting closed at 7.40 p.m.


Members are reminded that the Parish Council has a general duty to consider the following matters in the exercise of any of its functions:  Equal Opportunities (race, gender, sexual orientation, marital status and any disability), Crime and Disorder, Health & Safety and Human Rights
