Status

Outline Planning Permission Granted for 67 Dwellings

Project

LVA successfully obtained permission for up to 67 units in Cheddar.

Cheddar Parish Council initially opposed all development in the settlement. However, through positive engagement, we were able to form a relationship with them which enabled us to identify and provide solutions to various issues in the community. No safe pedestrian route to the playing fields and reservoir existed via pavement or footpath from the town centre, and so off-site highway improvements were included in the application to address this. The Parish Council also requested the provision of a sewage connection from the existing playing field buildings as part of the community benefit package, which is now included in the Section 106 agreement.

The Parish Council spoke in support of the scheme at the committee hearing. LVA were praised and councillors recommended that this should be used as an example of communities and developers working well together to produce a positive lasting legacy for a community.

The site was recently marketed, which generated a large amount of developer interest for an onward sale.
