Since Cross Farm has planning permission, we did not ask if it should be allocated, but simply asked what the community want from the site. 81 responses were received which have been passed to the developers (Acorn).

However, thanks to all of you who responded. This is what community consultation is all about.

Late News : Blue Cedar Homes is proposing to submit a planning application on the Holdenhurst site for retirement housing. This is not the Neighbourhood Plan proposal suggested in November 2017. It is proposed 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.

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.
