Westover Planning Matters May 2020

The new Aldi on Northgate is up for consideration 23rd  June

Planning issues for May 2020 coming to both Sedgemoor District Council and Bridgwater Town Council. Matters come first to Town Council where the planning panel sits fortnightly to consider a Town position (Support, Oppose or add conditions) and then it goes to Sedgemoor District Council’s Development Control Committee for the final decision. Ward Councillors and Town Council can comment on each application and if their views are different to the recommendation of Sedgemoor’s Planning officers then that application must be heard at Committee for discussion and vote. All ward councillors are notified of these applications.

Residents are welcome to write to us at Westoverward@gmail.com to make their own points on these issues which we may be able to take up. Brian Smedley is a member of the Bridgwater Town Planning Panel and Kathy Pearce and Li Gibson  are members of the Sedgemoor Development Control Committee.

URGENT NOTICE:- Due to the Coronavirus lock down normal council proceedings are suspended and planning decisions are taken on Bridgwater Town Council by the Town Clerk in consultation with the Planning Portfolio Holder Cllr Mick Lerry. The public can still comment directly on the web site or write to ward councillors with their views.

Sedgemoor District Council Development Committee is meeting on skype and meetings are available on the Sedgemoor you tube channel here.
