Somerset housing development gets green light

WINCANTON: South Somerset district councillors have approved Proposals for 212 houses in Somerset.
Bovis Homes, which is developing the Wincanton site, says the land was bought with planning consent but it decided to submit a new proposal after identifying improvements that would benefit the scheme.
A Bovis Homes spokesman said: "When Bovis Homes bought this site in Wincanton it came with an existing consent that could have been implemented immediately. However, through the planning and consultation process we identified various improvements that would be of benefit to the overall scheme and that would also reduce the impact of the new development upon neighbours.
"We've had productive meetings with neighbours, councillors and planning officers over that time and we're now looking to take forward these revised proposals and build some superb new homes for the people of Wincanton."
