On-site meeting held at Sunnyhill Farm (campsite), Riding Hill Gate, Wincanton BA9 8NG on 30th May 2018.
The Chairman clarified that, although the applicants’ campsite was situated just within the boundary of the neighbouring parish of Charlton Musgrove, notice of the Applications had been sent to Stoke Trister with Bayford PC by the planning authority, as was customary, so that the PC could express a view, if it wished, on its own behalf and on behalf of local residents.
The applicants and many of those present then expressed at considerable length their views for or against the two Applications.
After taking note of the representations made to them councillors decided to postpone coming to a conclusion until they had had the opportunity to consider further the planning history leading to these Applications.
Meeting held on 14th June 2018 at Bayford Mission Hall.
After lengthy discussion of the material submitted by applicants in support of the Applications, and other documents posted on the SSDC Planning Office website,
IT WAS RESOLVED
- That with regard to Planning Application 18/00931/COL in view of the lack of convincing evidence in support of the Application councillors recommend that a Lawful Development Certificate be refused.
- That with regard to Planning Application 18/00933/FUL councillors support Charlton Musgrove Parish Council’s recommendations, set out in their Clerk’s email of 24th May 2108 to SSDC Case Officer, Lee Walton, that the Application be refused.
