Call for Sites - March 2020
Housing and Economic Land Availability
South Somerset District Council is reviewing the Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (HELAA) which will be part of their evidence base used to identify additional sites for housing or employment to meet the District’s future requirements and to inform the five-year supply of deliverable housing land.
Their assessment will consider all sites and broad locations capable of delivering five or more dwellings or economic development on sites of 0.25 ha (or 500m2 of floorspace) and above.
For more detail go to the SSDC website - Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (HELAA)
Neighbourhood Plan Approach
Whilst submissions to SSDC may also be used to support the preparation of our Neighbourhood Plan the process does not necessarily identify all possible locations. As a result the NP Working Group is inviting residents and landowners in the community the opportunity to offer up potential sites above and below the SSDC threshold of 0.25 ha.
We wish to ensure that no location is overlooked and that all options are considered that may be more in tune with residents wishes of preserving the nature and character of the plan area.
So do you own some land in the parish?
* Perhaps a garden that is now too large, or
* A green field site, or
* Buildings which could be converted or redeveloped.
Would you like the Neighbourhood Plan to include it to allow some sort of development to take place?
If you do - you should tell us now.
If you are not Sure here are some common Questions and Answers
Q: I have submitted my site to South Somerset District Council – do I need to respond to your call?
A: Yes - the District Council do not have the necessary consents to pass your personal information on, and completing our forms ensures that we have the information we need to assess all sites fairly.
Q: What happens if I change my mind about developing my site?
