Lydiard Park under threat from developer
21 August 2016
Lydiard Heritage Action Group Formed
In the light of the ongoing threats to Lydiard Park from developers, the Lydiard Heritage Action Group (LHAG) has been formed. Chaired by Kevin Fisher of the SRA, it includes representatives of the Friends of Lydiard Park, the Lydiard Park Heritage Trust, Lydiard Millicent residents, residents of the Prinnels and residents of West Swindon.
The organisation has produced a leaflet as part of its campaign to ensure the application by Taylor Wimpey to build a housing estate within the essential setting of Lydiard Park and in full view of St Mary’s Church, is rejected.
The full background to this story is available on this website from the Taylor Wimpey – Lydiard Park tab.

Green Belt under siege – CPRE report
8 May 2016
The Campaign to Protect Rural England says “Last year’s report showed that 220,000 houses were planned for the Green Belt across England. This new report shows that this number has now reached 275,000. Government claims that it is committed to protecting the Green Belt are not being backed up in practice, and our report sends a clear message that greater protection for the Green Belt is needed”
