Why here?
The land in question at Elm Grove in Trowbridge (outlined on the map) is proposed as an allocation for residential development in Wiltshire Council's draft Housing Sites Allocation Plan (WHSAP).

The allocation had also previously proposed a new two form entry primary school. Wiltshire Council confirmed in February 2019 that the previously proposed primary school is no longer required due to demographic changes and additional capacity being available in existing primary schools in Trowbridge.
