Almost a dozen homes for people aged over 55 will be built in Wedmore.

Sedgemoor District Council’s development committee has given the go-ahead for Blue Cedar Homes to build 11 homes next to Holdenhurst.

Blue Cedar Homes planning director, Andrew Rowe, said: “Every Blue Cedar Homes development is designed to the highest standard and quality.

“We have prepared a bespoke scheme for Wedmore which both reflects and respects its setting.

“Our proposals are likely to be of particular interest to anyone considering a move to an age-appropriate property or helping a relative plan for later life.”

A number of the new homes will initially be reserved for interested villagers.

The plans have drawn some criticism from Wedmore’s neighbourhood development plan committee, which has hit out at the lack of affordable homes provision and the access off the busy Cheddar Road.
