TREE Preservation Order: Planning Application: 21/01719/TPO. Rowde Playing Fields, Sands Lane,
Rowde , Devizes SN10 2QW.
Oak TPO Ref E373: The findings of the PICUS report have shown the extent of decay within the main stem
of the tree. The tree is now deemed as unsafe in its present form; a limb has been lost in the past. The
application is to remove the central limb to just below the tear wound of recent limb loss and
reduce remaining main large limbs by 6-8m to reduce end weight and help to prevent failure in the future.
National Grid - Project to remove pylons from Roundway Down.
National Grid's plans to remove up to 12 pylons and around 4.5km of overhead electricity line near Roundway Hill and the Millennium White Horse in Devizes are being brought to life through a new interactive 360° virtual tour.
The once in a generation project will transform the landscape by placing electricity cables underground to greatly enhance views north of Devizes.
The North Wessex Downs scheme is currently one of only four locations in England and Wales selected for this pioneering landscape improvement project.
National Grid wants to hear what you think about the plans. To find out more, please take a look at the project’s website at northwessexdowns.nationalgrid.co.uk where you can visit the virtual tour, sign up to a free webinar and send your feedback.
