Many residents have been opposed to the development of 500 homes next to the B3105 in Staverton and 2,000 homes next to the bypass in Hilperton.  There have been several reasons for the opposition such as building on a well recognised flood plain and there being inadequate road and local services infrastructure to cope with the additional people living in the proposed homes.    Staverton is subject to regular flooding by the River Avon bridge and surrounding land with increased HGV traffic redirected from Bath and Bradford on Avon along the B3105 causing damage to the old canal bridge next to The Kings Arms public house.  It is important to note that regularly damaged water mains under the road outside Cereal Partners are to be replaced due to the weight of increased traffic from HGVs.   Unfortunately there was no mention of the bats to be found in the Staverton area in the recent survey carried out by Wiltshire Council and the newly appointed "Hilperton and Staverton Conservation Working Group" has raised this issue with the relevant authorities.  Flooding in Staverton is of major concern and building on the flood plain can only make it worse.  Hilperton has set up a Hilperton Area Action Group and is looking for volunteers to take readings of river and other flood levels on a regular basis.   If you would like to find out more information please can you contact  Mrs Celia Becket at:  http://hilpertonaag.uk/
