Updates on key issues, which local residents are keen to hear, will be given at the next meeting of Crewkerne Town Council’s Planning and Highways Committee, to be conducted on Zoom at 6.45 pm on Monday August 10th. Councillors will recieve an update on the action to seek legal advice over the appeal decision for the Kithill Development and an update from South Somerset District Council on the proposed start date for the development of the Millers Garage site, to provide the town with a long stay car park. In other planning issues, while there are no new applications for councillors to discuss, SSDC has confirmed that they have permitted the application, 20/02099/TCA to fell two trees, within a conservation area at the Hermitage, Pulmans Lane.
Following the planning and highways meeting, councillors will reconvene for Full Council. Matters on the agenda, include feedback from residents on the proposal for a community orchard at Barn Street Recreation Ground, a report from the working group on recommended MTIG and Community Grant funding priorities and consideration of quotation received in respect of the construction of a pathway to rear entrance of the George Reynolds Centre and construction of hard-standing area on Henhayes, adjacent to the car park gate.
