Who are EBRAG?

East Boreham Residents Action Group (EBRAG) is the name of a group of residents formed some years ago to successfully fight a similar proposal. Although the proposals and faces have changed, it seems fitting that we should keep the name for the on-going battle.

 

Major concerns include:

  • Development is outside Warminster Settlement Boundary which will set a dangerous precedent
  • Home Farm development is not in the Wiltshire Core Strategy or the Wiltshire Neighbourhood Plan
  • It destroys the rural green space between Warminster and the local conservation area
  • Massive increase in Warminster traffic
  • Impact on the local landscape and wildlife
  • Dangerous road access
  • Pressure on the fragile ecology of the river Wylye and flooding
  • Pressure on school places, doctors, dentists and parking
  • Irreparable environmental damage and destruction of local wildlife habitat
  • No public consultation on this application

"If this plan goes ahead...

this area will be changed forever."
