Stonehenge Campsite plan to go before planners

A PLANNING application for a revised lighting scheme at a campsite near Salisbury will go before planners for a second time today.

William Grant, owner of Stonehenge Campsite near Berwick St James, applied for a condition on his planning permission for the site to be removed and for a revised lighting scheme to be implemented last year.

But when a planning officer’s report to Wiltshire Council’s southern area planning committee recommended it be refused on the grounds the suggested lighting scheme would have an adverse impact on the character of the area, Mr Grant withdrew the application to address the objections.

The application will be heard by Wiltshire Council’s southern area planning committee at South Wilts School from 6pm and it is now recommended for approval, although the council has received ten letters of objection from members of the public.

Shame on the NIMBYs. Friends of our stayed on this site last year on their way down to Cornwall and were very complimentary about the site and the owner. We went to visit them whilst they were there and had dinner in the Village pub just down the road. They enjoyed they stay so much that the repeated the experience on the return journey and this time they came into Salisbury and we all went out for dinner in town. This site brings trade to the local area and should be supported.
