Coate Stone Circle

Stone Circle


Plans for homes at Coate rejected (again)

Also the Swindon Advertiser reports that last night the council threw out plans for the controversial Coate housing development - much to the surprise and jubilation of the 100 or so audience in the chamber at the Civic Offices. The fact that the site is an area of outstanding natural beauty and that it is a historic area were two of the five reasons cited for refusal.

The developers plan to appeal so there is always a danger that once again the majority wishes of the people from Swindon could be over-ridden. Meanwhile, here's to people power and especially Jean Saunders from the long and tiring 'Save Coate Campaign'. Three cheers for you, Jean and everyone else involved in the campaign.
