It’s less than a month after Swindon Borough Council approved plans (S/RES/11/0759) from Marston’s Inns for a pub-restaurant near the Croft Road entrance to East Wichel — on parcel WV35, between Blackhorse Way and Frogden Road. Councillors criticised that application saying “it wouldn’t win any architectural awards”.
Now Mitchells & Butlers have submitted a planning application (S/11/1239) for a site almost opposite — on the stub of Croft Road that leads to a veterinary clinic — to build a Toby Carvery. The drawings for this pub also look quite unimaginative. Anyone wishing to comment on or object to the application must do so by 29 September. Comments and objections can be submitted online.
