SSDC have rethought Housing in South Somerset.
More development could be coming to South Somerset after the SSDCl has identified more than 180 sites where future building could take place; of which two are in Curry Rivel.
South Somerset District Council has published the results of its Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (HELAA) — a lengthy process of identifying land which could be developed for either housing or employment use in the near-future.
The HELAA map for Curry Rivel shows the current Stanchester Way development area, but enlarged and what appears to be in Chatham Place.
SSDC does not have a five-year land supply — a means of demonstrating that it has sufficient land to build enough houses over the next five years to meet central government targets.
Without a five-year land supply, the Local Plan — which governs what kind of houses can be built and where — carries less weight, leaving the door open potentially for ugly, out-of-character or overly dense developments.
The council has therefore had to review all available land in the district and demonstrate that it has enough land for the next five years.
The HELAA includes sites suitable to accommodate five dwellings or more, or economic development of 0.25ha (or 500m2 of floor space) and above.
The exclusion of sites from the HELAA which fall below this threshold does not preclude the possibility of a planning application being submitted and later granted.
The HELAA only identifies opportunities for housing and economic development on sites, which are considered to be deliverable, developable and available. It does not allocate sites to be developed.
You can download the HELAA report and maps, the Curry Rivel map is on page 5 of the map PDF.
