Council says NO to housing developments
8:42am Thursday 22nd August 2013 in News
MEMBERS of South Somerset District Council last night (Wednesday, August 21) gave a resounding thumbs-down to two planning applications to build 460 homes in Chard.
The council's Area West committee unanimously rejected a scheme put forward by Mactaggart & Mickel Homes to build 350 properties and the relocation of Chard Town FC on land east of Mount Hindrance Farm.
And then the councillors voted similarly over David Wilson Homes' plans to build 110 homes on land east of Crimchard.
Hundreds of worried people attended the meeting with many speaking in opposition to the proposals.
Councillors were scathing of the proposals and congratulated residents on how they had put forward their concerns.
