This is good news for our town as it means more influence on what developers can and cannot do, and also more money.

Many thanks to all who voted.

For those concerned about the current application for 200 more houses on the greenfield site that overlooks that station, please write as soon as possible to the South Somerset District Council. Letters/emails really do make a difference… the more the better…

For details of the application visit the Planning section of the SSDC website. The reference number is: 19/01840/OUT

The OUT means Outline – so you don’t need to pay attention either to the layout or to the design of the houses… only to the principle of building 200 houses on that field
