A planning application relating to the Goddard Arms was submitted to Wiltshire Council;

The application reference is 20/0981/CLE.

This has since been rejected by Wiltshire Council.

The importance of a pub to our community is not in doubt, with numerous surveys, including the Neighbourhood Plan questionnaire, indicating this.

However it must be remembered that the property is privately owned.

The Parish Council applied to WC for the Goddard Arms to be listed as an Asset of Community Value back in 2016. The application was successful, however the ACV expired in March 2021 and a renewal was not applied for by the PC at the time.

If you have any questions you can contact the PC in the usual way:
