15/02. Public recess.
Mrs Chapman explained the background to the Toll Cottage at 33 Meadow Way Badbury, that there had been attempted break-ins, drug dealings, flytipping and visits by gypsies. She explained that she was ignorant of planning requirements etc and the retrospective planning application was unintentional.
Cllr Hill asked if the property was inhabited, and is the agent being sacked to which Mrs Chapman replied that the property was occupied and that the work had almost been completed meaning it was not feasible to sack the agent.
Cllr Rawlings stated that the wall built is a danger, and Mrs Chapman is willing to reduce the height by the required amount to make it legal.

S/15/0472 – double storey side and rear extensions at 104 Castle View Road. No objections.
S/15/0498 (retrospective) – erection of stable block at Toll Cottage, 33 Meadow Way, Badbury. Cllr Rawlings read out the email from Tom Buxton to Andrew Bennett. The committee objected to the plans as presented, as the stable block is in the wrong place, and the ménage, lighting and wall are unplanned. Andy Brown and Tom Buxton should look at the property and send a formal letter to the Parish Council. Retrospective plans should be stopped.
15/06. Other planning applications.
15/07. Low Carbon local development orders.
Cllr Hill was mainly in favour but didn’t agree with the solar farm to be built at Wroughton. The other two councillors were against the development orders and the clerk is to write to SBC.
