The Secretary of State, Planning Inspectorate has granted outline planning permission for a housing development on arable land south of Kit Hill. Yesterday’s decision on the appeal, lodged under Section 78 of the Town and Country Planning Act of 1990, by Mr James Tizzard, Pegasus Planning Group Ltd on behalf of the applicant Land Value Alliances LLP on December 17th, 2019, against refusal by SSDC’s Regulation Committee on September 17th last year, brought an immediate response from Crewkerne Town Council.
Councillor Charles Aslett, Chair of Planning & Highways Committee said: “We have now received a copy of the Planning Inspectorate Appeal Decision, reference APP/R3325/W/19/3240967, land south of Kit Hill, via the Planning Officer at South Somerset District Council. This decision is regarding the outline application 18/01737/OUT, for residential development of up to 150 dwellings, public open space, landscaping and associated works with access from Lang Road.
“It has been the Town Council’s position since the beginning that this application was not acceptable in its current form. We are therefore disappointed to have to confirm to the town that the Planning Inspectorate has decided to allow the appeal, subject to conditions.”
