A planning application has been submitted to regenerate a town centre retail park in Chippenham.

The scheme would involve the redevelopment of Hathaway Retail Park into a mixed-use site with leisure, retail, office, industrial and residential uses.

The 54-acre site next to the railway station is currently home to outlets such as Homebase and Halfords.

Part of the neighbouring Langley Park would also be redeveloped in the plan.

The scheme has been submitted by Central Chippenham Partnership (CCP) - a joint venture between Aberdeen Property UK Retail Parks Trust and Ashtenne Industrial Fund.

An Ashtenne spokesman said Chippenham had "huge potential", and the proposal would "encourage people back to the town centre with new leisure and shopping".

The developers expect to find out the outcome of the planning application submitted to Wiltshire Council by the end of the year.
