Work begins to prepare Somerset housing development

Work begins to prepare Somerset housing development

Work has been undertaken on a proposed housing development in Wells, although developers claim there may still be a way to go before the houses are erected.

House hunters looking for property for sale in Somerset will be pleased to hear that work has begun on trying to gain planning permission, with three large trenches in field to the west of the site. 

The proposed land for the development is situated between Wells and Haybridge and while the digging of trenches may have attracted attention from local residents, Simon Steel-Perkins, of the Exeter-based Strategic Land Partnership, claims that everything is above board. 

Mr Steel-Perkins said: "The archaeological investigations have been authorised by Somerset County Council and are just one of the many different types of surveys that have to be done before anyone can think of applying for planning permission."

The government recently announced a fund to help stalled housing developments get back up and running again.
