6. Planning Matters 

a. New Planning Matters

Planning Application No: 19/01322/S73

Applicant: Hopkins Estates

Location:  Land OS 3969 Part Devenish Lane, Bayford, Wincanton.

Proposal:  Application to vary condition 2 (approved  plans) of planning approval 18/03272/FUL (amendment of roof material) – There were no objections to the change of roofing material. However, we would like to see the Planning Officers consultation with Wessex Water concerning the high pressure pipes underground.

Planning Application No: 19/01284/REM 

Applicant: Mr. Shaun Paul 

Location: Land adjacent to Highbrook, Devenish Lane. 

Proposal: Application of reserved matters following approval of 18/02145/OUT for the erection of a two storey detached dwelling to include access, appearance, landscaping, layout and scale. – At a site meeting today, the following observations were made by Stoke Trister with Bayford Parish Council: The Councillors were unable to access the site and no one was available to ask permission. 

1. Devenish Lane is a rural settlement and this application does not conform with the requirements of the SS2 housing need within the SSDC Local Plan 2006-2028. 

2. Devenish Lane is a dangerous single-track lane encountering a lot of traffic at present. Further development will cause more traffic and more distress to residents. 

3. There will be a massive amount of drainage work to be done. 

4. We reiterate our previous observations for this application made on 28 September 2018. 

5. Stoke Trister with Bayford Parish Council therefore unanimously refuse this application. 

Some Councillors mentioned that the owners were running a business from this site with no planning permission. This has been previously addressed to the Planning Department, however, we are unaware what, if anything, has been done about it.
