Proposal for 40 House Development at Leigh on Mendip

The Leigh on Mendip Parish Council have just been notified that the developer for the land at the rear of Ivy Cottage is now moving forward with an application for outline planning permission for 40 dwellings. Of these, 8 starter homes and 2 units are for social rent/shared ownership as affordable housing; he has provided a plan of the site but no other supporting information; the plan and other information is available from the links below. The developer promised to hold a public consultation in the village for you to express your views and he has been reminded of this; the Council will continue to urge him to deliver this opportunity.

Should the developer walk away from a public consultation, there will be an opportunity to comment individually and directly to Mendip District Council when the planning application is posted. The Parish Council will also welcome your views when we discuss and decide our recommendation to Mendip District Council. Until then it is important that Councillors are impartial to avoid being seen to be predetermining their recommendation.

We will continue to provide any information made available to us in advance of the formal planning application being released.  

The Parish Council
