A Heritage Assessment has been produced to support the Wedmore Neighbourhood Plan. It was instructed as a result of Historic England’s SA screening objection and hence this report post-dates the pre-submission draft of the Regulation 14 Plan (July 2018). It has been prepared by Kim Sankey BA(Hons), DipArch, AADipCons,RIBA.

The report therefore:

  • undertakes a Heritage Assessment of Wedmore in general and the proposed Regulation 14 allocations in particular, and
  • provide professional advice to the Neighbourhood Plan Group that the submission plan needs to be amended to reduce the capacity of Westholme Farm to 11 units and a reference to NPPF para 129 needs to be added to all the housing allocations.  Taken together with other recommendations this will appropriately mitigate any heritage impact.
