New homes may be created in Somerset

New homes may be created in Somerset

The amount of property for sale in Somerset may increase if plans for more dwellings get the go-ahead.

Developer Persimmon Homes wants to construct more than 50 abodes in the county, Burnham-On-Sea.com reports.

The proposals are centred on a former landfill site in Burnham-On-Sea.

In a new development, local planning case officer Rob Morgan has recommended the idea for approval and Sedgemoor District Council's development control committee is due to meet to discuss the initiative in the near future.

Mr Morgan commented: "The proposal involves the development on a site which has been allocated for residential development since 1990 and is shown as committed for residential development in the Sedgemoor District Local Plan."

He added that as well as homes, Persimmon's ideas include provisions for things such as cycleway links, public safety works and contributions towards a public open space in the local area, which is situated in the south-west of England.
