Planning news

The Town Councils planning meeting met this evening, there was a couple of interesting plans to be considered.

The first was at the old redundant factory at Cowl street/Silk close.

The proposal was to demolish the old factory and the erection of 9 new dwellings, with associated landscaping and car parking.

This site has had a number of plans submitted and have been refused.

In some ways the previous plans were more appealing than these latest plans, however the dwellings were of the same design as Silk Close, with the main entrance through Silk Close, I would have liked the buildings facing Cowl Street to replicate the stone buildings, and close attention should be given to entrances from this new development.

I seconded the proposal for Mendip Council to recommend approval of this application, on the basis that a redundant site will come back into life and the nine homes are affordable, supplied by South Western Coop housing.

The other application was erection of a terrace of three houses on land adjacent to 6 Stevens Close, for me this application was premature as the land by this site is pending a planning application and the access to this site is not yet up to standard.
