Anonymous flyers

It has come to our attention that some anonymous flyers have been posted through doors in part of Old Sarum, relating to the proposed planning applications by Persimmon. For clarification, the Residents' Association will always clearly state our name and contact details on any flyer, leaflet or poster that we distribute. The current flyers are not from the Residents' Association, or any member of the Residents' Association committee.

If you have any concerns about the proposed planning applications, please get in touch with us, as we have all the relevant information and are actively representing the community in this matter.

New plans from Persimmon

This month, Persimmon have started discussions about some new plans for Old Sarum.

The Residents' Association agreed to distribute leaflets of the proposals to the residents of Old Sarum. We received payment for this, but don't support the contents of the leaflet. The payment will help to defray costs of running the Residents' Association.

The map from this leaflet can be found here.



Some of these plans are detailing items that have long been agreed, and were described in the Section 106 document (an agreement between the Council and Persimmon) from several years ago.

Others go beyond what was agreed, adding extra houses and removing open space.

Over the next few days I'll summarise the plans, and what they mean for us as a community.

On Monday and Tuesday (24th and 25th September) evening, Persimmon held presentations of the new plans in Old Sarum Primary School. Then, yesterday evening, the Residents' Association held an open meeting for the residents to tell us what they thought.

Please keep your thoughts coming to us, at contact@osres.org for general discussion, or issues@osres.org for issues you want the Residents' Association committee to look at.
