CAUSE 2015 are a new campaign group set up to oppose the proposed mass housing development that is currently being considered for the East of Chippenham. This would make a total of 4,925 more homes for Chippenham alone, with a population increase of nearly 10,000 since 2011.
You may be surprised to hear that our lovely rural county has areas where the air is so polluted it breaches EU limits.
North Wilts FoE are concerned about plans to change the Parish and Town boundaries around Chippenham, that will allow expansion of the town on a scale never seen before.
At the November meeting of North Wilts FoE it was revealed that the Council will be meeting in private to discuss these new proposals that could be decided by March 31st 2015.
The North Wilts FoE Countryside Awareness Walk on November 1st was deemed a success, with lots of new contacts made, plenty of ideas discussed, on a bright sunny day, that showed Chippenham and it's beautiful surrounding countryside at it's glorious best.
