  12. 46.0.P23

    This is an application to amend condition 32 of the original outline application (11/19/00003) for the erection of up to 248 dwelling. The condition currently states that:-
    No more than 100 dwellings of the development hereby permitted shall be occupied or brought into use unless either;
    - Improvement works at M5 J22/A38 Edithmead roundabout, comprising the full signalisation of the A38 Edithmead roundabout, have been implemented in full and are open to traffic; or
    - An alternative scheme is proposed by the applicant and implemented in full to ensure that the predicted traffic effects at M5 J22 caused by the development are mitigated to at least the same extent as (a). This alternative scheme is to be agreed in writing by the Planning Authority in consultation with Highways England, Somerset County Council and Sedgemoor District Council.
    This application seeks to change this to allow up to 200 dwellings to be occupied before the improvement works are implemented. Since the Town Council commented (objection attached) we have agreed a way forward with the applicant and National Highways to bring forward funding such that the improvements could be delivered much earlier. National Highways have confirmed that they do not object to the proposed change as the agreements that have been reached would in any event deliver the improvements well before the 200th occupation.
    I attach a letter from the applicant which outlines the position and confirmation from National highways that they no longer object.
    This being the case can I ask that the Town Council consider their position and confirm if they wish to maintain their objection?

  13. 47.0.P23

    Please find attached letter and drawings in respect of the proposed telecommunications upgrade at the above site.
