Blue Cedar Consultation

We have been informed by Blue Cedar Homes that it is consulting on its proposals for 11 retirement homes on the Holdenhurst site.

This is not the Neighbourhood Plan proposal suggested in November 2017.  They are proposing to create a new access off Cheddar Road (not our proposal to use the car park access) and will not provide on-site affordable housing.

In view of this, the Neighbourhood Plan is likely to withdraw its support for the development of the joint Holdenhurst / Wells Almshouses Trust land.

Blue Cedar’s revised proposal is here –

Wedmore Draft Housing Provision Published

On the 7th December 2016, the Executive of Sedgemoor District Council considered a draft of the new Local Plan.  If approved by Full Council, this is proposed to go on six weeks public consultation from the 30thJanuary 2017.

 With regard to Wedmore, the minimum housing provision to be met between 2011 and 2032 is 118 homes.  However, if completions since 2011 are deducted along with unimplemented permissions (including Cross Farm), the minimum figure to be allocated by the Neighbourhood Plan falls to 50.

 The Neighbourhood Plan Group will be asking for possible allocation sites to be submitted for assessment in the first half of 2017.
