40 New homes to be built in Lympsham, despite flood risk


BBC Local Democracy Reporter (LDR) states,

"The plans to build houses in Lympsham were narrowly approved on July 21, just over three years after they were first submitted.


A local resident said the new houses will be "generating demand for local services and employment on a scale that cannot be met"


Speaking on behalf of Lympsham Parish Council, Heather Allsop said the justification for the homes was "very questionable indeed", in light of much of the site being deemed at high risk of flooding by the Environment Agency (EA)" . (ArticlePDF)

The full planning application can be seen on the Sedgemoor District Council website, Planning Application No. 31/19/00016. Also see the associated Committee Agenda Pack.
