Location

Kithill, Crewkerne, Somerset

Status

Appeal Allowed for 150 houses

Project

LVA successfully promoted this 16-hectare site adjacent to an existing residential area on the southern edge of the Somerset town Crewkerne.

Due to the topography of the land, an indicative scheme was designed that provides a comprehensive landscaped edge, offering positive enhancement to the existing status quo.

Following refusal of an application for 150 dwellings in September 2019, an appeal was subsequently allowed in June 2020. The Planning Inspector considered the settlement to need new housing and the site in an accessible location to accommodate growth, without an adverse impact on local highways and pedestrian safety.

The site will be marketed shortly.
