Still time to have your say on housing in Sedgemoor

PUBLISHED: 14:00 30 July 2016


Sedgemoor District Council is in the process of developing a ‘long-term’ plan to build houses and factories across Sedgemoor – but it wants feedback from residents.

The council has held a number of drop-in sessions so people can ask members of the planning policy team questions.

Potential housing sites include Burnham, Highbridge and Cheddar. A recent session in Cheddar welcomed more than 200 people.

A spokesman for Sedgemoor District Council said: “The consultation has highlighted various issues, including the need to ensure necessary roads are in place and there are improvements to essential services such as schools and health care facilities to cope with any future growth.

“There is still plenty of time to comment on the suggestions.

“All comments will be fully considered and make an important contribution to shaping the future of the district. Further opportunities to comment on the new local plan will be available when the full draft document is published later this year.”
