On Tuesday 19 November 2019 South Somerset District Council’s Regulation Committee will make the decision about whether to approve an application to build 60 houses in a field immediately to the south of Brewham Road. If they approve the application on Tuesday, there is no right of appeal. This is the final opportunity for Bruton residents to influence their decision. Turning up in numbers will show the committee that their decision matters to local people.
Please attend if you can. The Committee will sit at 10.00 am in the District Council Offices in Brympton Way, Yeovil, BA20 2HT. There is free parking for visitors. Please arrive by 9.45 am. (Allow 40 minutes for the drive. The best route is normally via the A303 west to the Podimore Roundabout then left into Yeovil on the A3088).
Bruton Town Council is not opposed to the principle of development on this site, but we are recommending refusal of this particular proposal, as ‘the potential scale and density of the proposed development would have a detrimentalimpact on the character, biodiversity and appearance of the area’. We have also decided to ‘oppose the proposed development unless proper provision is made for the safety of pedestrians and for highway safety more generally’. The decisions were made at an Extraordinary Town Council meeting on 4 April 2019.
