A scheme for around 600 new dwellings, a primary school, a local centre, a new permanent home for the annual Mid Somerset Show and substantial parkland open space on a site close to the town centre allocated in the Mendip Local Plan.
An Outline Planning Application has been submitted but, due to delays in the planning system caused by phosphate run off to the Somerset Levels, a decision date is uncertain. Once outline permission has been granted, a Phase 1 detailed application will be required and this is currently programmed early 2024. A site start is therefore a little way off.
The new showground now has its own full planning permission and the first show was held successfully at its new home on 15th August 2021.
