Six new homes planned near Tidworth garage and supermarket

SIX new homes could be built on land near a Tidworth garage and supermarket.

Spencer Architecture, on behalf of MOT Supercentre Ltd, has applied to Wiltshire Council for permission to build the properties on land behind Station Road.

The garage would continue operating in its current guise, the application said, with the properties being developed in three semi-detached blocks.

“This proposal is for three pairs of semi-detached, three-bedroom houses orientated north-south on the land,” it said. “This will be accessed by a new private road with car parking on the east side.

“This allows the houses to have a landscaped frontage with soft vegetation and garden space to the rear.

“The outlook from the front is to the east and has a pleasant view over their gardens, their own car parking, and the west side of the Ashdown Centre which is a domestic-style building, now used as residential accommodation.”

The properties would be made up of six semi-detached, three-bedroom homes

The homes would have “easy pedestrian access” to Tidworth, it said, with two parking spaces per property and bike storage.

“It is also recognised that there is a also a large public car park in the vicinity on the south side of Station Road, next to the Tesco store, should more visitors need parking,” the application said.

It added: “We believe this is an opportunity to add to the housing stock in Tidworth, which is a thriving community.

“There is a great need for family accommodation in Tidworth and this will help satisfy the requirement within the central area.”
