Aug 2007 Planning Application withdrawn 2007-08-25 16:10:42

Article received from Mr D Garrett of Creech St Michael
August 23rd 2007


The outline planning application that was submitted to Taunton Deane Planning
for the redevelopment of Creech Motors Site in the centre of the village, has now been withdrawn by Humberts on behalf of their client Mr M. Tucker.


There was considerable opposition sent to the planning officer, from local residents as well as the Parish Council, regarding the proposed type of development.


These included safety issues, house design, inadequate parking, waste disposal, access and rights of way, in addition to the loss of jobs and established businesses.


A point was made from a resident in favour of the development regarding an issue of noise pollution from one of the present businesses on the site.

However, it has been intimated on the Taunton Deane Planning website that an alternative planning application may be forthcoming.


All current, and previous planning applications, can be viewed at the following Website:

Anyone wishing to view the details of the original planning application, which included comments posted regarding this redevelopment, can be viewed on the Taunton Deane Planning Application website:

The Planning Application Number is 14/2007/028

SURFACE DRESSING PROGRAMME 2007 – TAUNTON DEANE AREA


The following roads in your parish will be surface-dressed during the current season. The timing as to when each individual road is likely to be treated is intended as an approximate guide and is dependant on the weather and other factors.


Locations: Approx. Timing of Treatment:
Creech Heathfield Road Mid August

Surface dressing is a low cost method of maintenance and is used to waterproof road surfaces that are showing deterioration, prior to the development of potholes or failure of the road structure. The treatment, which also restores skid resistance of the road, has been used extensively for many years in this country and abroad on all types of roads, from minor estate roads to motorways.


Until the dressing has stabilised, it is essential that the traffic speeds be kept down. Unfortunately, despite warnings signs, some vehicles drive too fast causing flying chippings, which not only damage the dressing but other vehicles as well. Tight turning, wheel spin or heavy braking can also cause damage to new dressings.


Any assistance your Council can give in spreading the word to your local community would be very much appreciated. I enclose copies of our surface-dressing leaflet, which I hope you will find of interest.


Yours sincerely
