A PERMANENT GATEHOUSE has been approved to help with security at the Dyson Malmesbury campus.

The 39.5 sqm facility will be situated to the north of the site, close to its link to the B4014.

The Wiltshire-based institute was established in 1993 and is one of the largest research and development hubs in Britain.

It is the base for over 3,500 employees and also home to the Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology.

Wiltshire Council recently received another defence-related application in October 2023, when Dyson proposed high-security fencing and gates on its nearby site at Hullavington Airfield to address ongoing security issues.

In other planning news, Wiltshire Council received and considered many other applications this week.

A 1.6-hectare fishing lake has been proposed at Gryphon Lodge Farm, north west of Swindon, near Leigh.

The lake would be stocked with specimen carp and offered on exclusive lets for up to a week, with guests staying in an adjacent lodge.
