A SECOND appeal by White Lion Land to build a 77-home estate off Park Road in Malmesbury is to be heard on April 1.

Heard in public, the appeal is at the council offices in Monkton Park, Chippenham, starting at 10 am and is expected to last four days.

The company’s first application was turned down two over two years ago and an appeal failed when the inspector ruled it was premature to the development of the new local plan. A similar application was also thrown out by Wiltshire Council late last year.
