Middle Wichel District Centre Foodstore

Public Exhibition on reserved matters application for the foodstore at the new district centre at Middle Wichel

Kilo Properties Ltd have prepared a reserved matters planning application for the development of a foodstore as part of the new district centre at Middle Wichel, as the next step in the creation of a sustainable community at Wichelstowe.

The district centre already benefits from outline planning permission, in addition the Council has undertaken consultation on the Design Codes for the district centre which control the appearance of the building. The foodstore application has been developed in accordance with these documents and has involved extensive pre-application discussions with the Council. The foodstore forms the first phase of the development of the district centre.

Members of the community were invited to comment on the draft proposals; Kilo Properties Ltd hosted a series of drop in public exhibitions on:

  • Thursday 14th Feb (3.30-8.00pm) East Wichel Primary School
  • Friday 15th Feb (9.30am – 1.00pm) Ridgeway School, Wroughton
