GMG Farm

This is a new housing development on the site of an old Wiltshire County Council farm. The EA required that runoff be restricted to the “green field” rate and discharged DOWNSTREAM of the Old Sodom Lane bridge – a planning condition was added to require such a scheme be approved before development started. Development Control, despite extensive pressure from the community, have failed to enforce this condition, most of the houses are now built and occupied, water flows unattenuated from the site to UPSTREAM of the Old Sodom Lane bridge.

In March 2008, the only flooding north of the M4 was all the houses immediately upstream of the Old Sodom Lane bridge, the houses that should have been protected by the required attenuation scheme.
