BANES Site Allocations Development Plan Document

GT.2: Old Colliery Buildings, Stanton Wick

Potential pitch provision: 15 permanent pitches and 5 transit pitches
The site is a former colliery, located outside Stanton Wick. The site is in private ownership.
The site is adjacent to a coach business and two residential properties. The previous B2 use has ceased. The site benefits from extant planning permission for conversion to a single dwelling, ancillary accommodation, B1 floorspace and garaging for 5 vehicles (application ref. 05/02227/FUL).

The site is located within the Green Belt. The site is well screened from its surroundings, and sensitive site design would prevent significant visual intrusion into the countryside.
The existing buildings on-site present an opportunity for reuse as utility blocks and community space, which could include an education facility, and space for business use. This would make efficient use of previously developed land. The development of this site should require formal links to be made to the Avon Consortium Traveller Education Service (ACTES) and local GP services to ensure long term educational opportunities, health and well-being.

The site would require some remediation works prior to redevelopment and occupation as a Gypsy / Traveller site.

The site is heavily constrained by its access which is single-track in parts.

A total of 15 permanent pitches and 5 transit pitches could be provided on this site, reflecting Government guidance on optimum site sizes for management purposes. The two pitch types could be clearly separated to ensure effective site management.
