Property Description

South Somerset - Residential Development

Detailed planning for 31 dwellings on c.1.6 HA/4 acres.

A green field site within an attractive residential location to the northern edge of Wincanton.  

THE SITE

A slightly graded c. 4-acre site with woodland boundaries to the north and east, an existing residential development to the south and the Wincanton Community Hospital to the west.

Road access is off Dancing Lane with the design arrangements to cross part of the hospital site included with the consented design. Pre-existing land contract documents allow a purchaser to undertake such works on the hospital land.

Outline planning permission was granted as an Appeal Decision on 19th October 2015 (ref: APP/R3325/A/14/2222697) for up to 55 dwellings, access works, relocation of NHS parking, provision of open space and other ancillary works in in accordance with the terms of the application (ref: 14/00838/OUT) dated 24th February 2014.
