Next Wednesday, 9th December, the Landhouse development at Cuckoo Hill will be considered by the Council’s Area East Committee who will determine if planning permission for the new housing estate is to be granted.
The good news is that the Landhouse developers will put aside £30,000 to build a gravel path from the estate once a connecting path is built across the County Fields to the south. Here’s a link to the details of the proposed path. Whilst not as good as the originally proposed path it is definitely a step in the right direction. We would like to thank the developers and landowners for listening to the community and committing to building this path. The path has the potential to limit traffic problems and be a real asset to the new and existing residents.
We would, however, very much prefer that the path is built when the estate is built and are keen to ensure that it has a surface that is suitable for pushchairs, children’s scooters and mobility scooters. We will be attending the meeting to present the case for this. If you would like to show support for the path please join us at the meeting. It is in Wincanton at the Council Offices and will be heard after 10:30am (here’s the agenda and the planning officers report). If you would like a lift or to car share then please contact us via Basii. Also, if you cannot attend but would like to express an opinion then please let us know and we will endeavour to do so on your behalf.
