After a four-year planning process, Wiltshire Council grants approval for 95 new homes encompassed on an old brownfield site in Chippenham.

The Oak Hill Rise development, put forward by Persimmon Homes Wessex will replace the now decommissioned Wiltshire Ambulance Service station.

All 95 properties will be no-gas and instead powered by air source heat pumps, with EV charging points located throughout the site.

With a range of mixed occupancy homes, including 26 under the shared ownership and affordable housing bracket.

Plans also include the creation of a new public green space, with bird and bat boxes included and additional trees to be planted to encompass the site.

Managing director of Persimmon Homes Wessex, Julian Roper, says: “We’ll also be delivering active travel links, biodiversity enhancements, and contribute over £1 million towards infrastructure improvements in Chippenham.”
