Council Welcomes Expansion Of Shaftesbury Builders’ Merchant

For eight months, a resident who lives near Shaftesbury’s Travis Perkins has been uploading YouTube videos of delivery lorries disrupting A350 traffic or blocking his driveway next to the builders’ merchant’s Littledown branch.

The situation at the depot could soon change. Shaftesbury Town councillors have voted to support Travis Perkins’ proposal to extend their site onto a one-acre adjacent field.

In our report, you’ll hear why councillors were keen to back this proposal. As the site is in Wiltshire, planners in Trowbridge will have the final say.
