Green light for major new housing development in Yeovil

Oct 30, 2019

Councillors have given the go-ahead to building 765 new homes off Primrose Lane at Upper Mudford in Yeovil.

Members of South Somerset District Council spent eight-and-a-half hours yesterday (Tues 29 Oct) debating the application from the Abbey Manor Group. The development also includes a community hall, 65-bed care home, retail and employment premises.

Dozens of local people submitted objections to the scheme, including concerns the site could be contaminated with Anthrax and might be a health risk.

Due to the complex nature of the application, a "holding direction" was placed on it - meaning the plans could be 'called-in' by the government and a public inquiry held.
