Plans to build 130 homes in Highbridge ‘would be considered’ by Sedgemoor District Council.

Developer Toni Hammick wants to build the houses between Lakeside and Isleport Business Park, but part of the land is owned by the district council, with the remainder owned privately by different individuals.

Although the field is not formal open space, it is still currently protected from development through planning policy.

A spokesman for the district council said: “As partial landowner, we have agreed to allow the developer to explore the possibility of development on its land.

“Any sale of district council-owned land would be subject to a public consultation 
exercise and then any decision to sell would have to gain the executive committee’s approval.

“As yet, no planning application has been received and any application will be considered by our development committee.”
