Kithill, Crewkerne, Somerset


Appeal Allowed for 150 houses


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.

LVA have identified a developer who has committed to deliver the scheme in line with LVA’s and the landowner’s aspirations.
