Proposed Development – Hamsfield Lane, South Petherton

Persimmon / Charles Church have launched their website this week for their proposed Planning Application. The site is to infom the public that their application for Outline Planning Permission is to be submitted in September 2023. Residents will be notified of the submission by Somerset Council and will be invited to provide comments within the statutory consultation period.

The website offers residents the chance to tell Persimmon their views on the proposed development, and it can be found at

Persimmon have also informed us that they will be distributing leaflets in the coming days, so that the community can all have a chance to engage.
