Earmarked for development? 2012-10-16 13:18:27
Could you tell me if the field 'behind West View and Cook's close' is also earmarked for development?

This area does not form part of the 'strategic urban extension' which is the Monkton Heathfield side of the M5 and referred to in previous questions.
The Parish Council have not (as far as I am aware as chair person) been asked to formally comment on any potential developments in the area you describe. No formal planning applications have been received by the PC for this area to date.
So in short as far as I am aware at this time this area is not formally 'earmarked' for development.

Thanks -

Hi Ian,

The hall is signposted in the centre of village at Rysland Way by the Baptist Church and our newly painted telephone box. The postcode for the area is TA3 5QQ.
There are other landmarks to use but I am not sure which was you would be coming from.

Regards

Will there be a safe cycle way/footpath from the new development in Hyde Lane to the amenities at Monkton Heathfield (schools, Tacchi Morris etc)? 2012-10-08 12:57:03
Will there be a safe cycle way/footpath from the new development in Hyde Lane to the amenities at Monkton Heathfield (schools, Tacchi Morris etc)?  We do walk this route sometimes and it is extremely dangerous as some drivers are not cautious, drive too fast and we have had a few near squeaks.  This route is used daily by schoolchildren so can't believe the issue has not been dealt with before.  Thank you.

Dear Mrs Insall, I agree that Hyde Lane on the far side of the motorway bridge is rather narrow but I am rather concerned about the proposal to close this section of Hyde Lane to vehicles and only allow cycle & pedestrian traffic. This is the shortest route from the centre of Creech to town and is fairly well used, so longer journeys would be involved if this road is closed off to vehicles. There is also the other point that all the traffic from the new estates would have to use Hyde Lane into the village to get to town. This will cause an increase of traffic along the section near the school and the new doctors surgery which is always congested in day times during school terms. I think that it would not involve a major job to cut off two corners this side of Hyde cottages which would make the road safer for all users. Perhaps the developers of the new estate could help with this.

Thank you very much for the prompt replies to my question, I will watch this space and hopefully a solution will be found that suits everyone concerned.
Reply Eric Chown 2012-10-09 09:40:23
Dear Mrs Insall,
Your concerns about the dangers in the walk along Hyde Lane towards Monkton Heathfield are shared by many and have been addressed in the documents outlining the plans for the development that to take place.
A map 18.3 “Taunton Deane Core Strategy Strategic Diagram” clearly outlines potential cycle and footpaths from the Creech side of the M5 along Hyde lane also at Langaller both feeding into the existing local plans for the new development.
How these paths cross the new 'Eastern Relief Road' (diverting most traffic from the old route of the A38, if built) is not made clear but the risks and hazards you talk about along the road have been noted and surely will be acted upon.
On this website another plan similar to the above was posted in the 'News' section of June 2012. It has less detail but the accompanying long document from Cllr M. Edwards, portfolio holder for Planning and Transportation does mention a proposal to close Hyde lane to motorized vehicular traffic.
This sensitive area is of concern to Creech parish council and how the closure will implemented has been discussed at length at various PC meetings. The two latest PC minutes are posted in the “Parish Council” section on this website.
You may also see from Councillor Edwards document that all of the proposals are not 'set in stone'.
I am not an expert or a spokesman for the Deane and perhaps others will also respond to your question.
I have asked that the map 18.3 is posted in the News section on this website to illustrate my points.

Dear Mrs Insall
This is one of the questions we asked the planners when the parish council met with them in September.
They advised the current plan is to make the road from Hyde Lane through to Britton's Ash a cycle/pedestrian route, however, other Creech residents have asked that this remain open to cars.
We suggested other ideas like keeping this open to cars but implementing a proper walking cycle lane on the road as we are very aware that this is used for access to/from Heathfield school.
Between now and Xmas there will be further public meetings with the planners/developers to confirm some of the details such as this. The meetings will be publicised on this website and noticeboards.
All the best
Clare Sampson (Parish Council Chairperson)

Is there a map for the new housing at Walford Cross? 2012-10-08 12:54:46
Ref-- New houseing at walford cross.I cannot see a map,is there one available to view.
C Wood, Creech Heathfield
Reply Clare Sampson 2012-10-08 20:54:10
Dear C Wood
Indicative designs of the housing estate and roadways are detailed in the Taunton Urban Extension Illustrative Masterplan
You can use this link - http://www.tauntondeane.gov.uk/irj/go/km/docs/CouncilDocuments/TDBC/Documents/Forward%20Planning/Evidence%20Base/Taunton%20Urban%20Extension%20Masterplan.pdf
Or search for it on the Internet.
Only a small area of the development has planning permission so far, so the masterplan is just an indication of how the entire development will look.
Please note between now and Christmas we are advised there will be further public consultation meetings on the finer details of the new development, we will ensure these are publicised on this website and the noticeboards in the village.
Clare Sampson (Parish Council Chairperson)

Dear C Wood,

This is a quick answer to a complicated question.
The Taunton Deane Local Plan is a very wordy document and Creech St Michael is covered in Chapter 13.
Like you I cannot see any reference to new housing at Walford Cross. All the plans show are proposals for mixed development use in the triangle of Monkton Elms, Langaller and Walford Cross. This area is a much later phase of the Taunton Deane Local Plan. Walford Cross is shown as an 'employment area' much as it is now. The dates for this phase seem to be 2015 - 2028.
I hope to get a small plan of these proposals placed on the website and will let you know went they are posted.
I hope this helps

How can I get an Allotment Site? 2012-10-05 08:17:21
Would like to know how i can get an allotment site please
Gregory Carreau, Creech St. Michael
Reply Eric Chown 2012-10-05 16:49:46
Gregory,

You can make an application for a plot by contacting Mike Berryman who is chairman and plot secretary. He can be contacted at 01823 412451

The allotments are at Creech Heathfield and are only for Creech residents. The plot sizes start at about 18m x 7m. Guidelines for allotment use will be issued to each holder.

I hope this helps
