South Stoke Plateau - next steps

You may be aware on July 10, 2014 Bath and North East Somerset Council decided to adopt the Core Strategy.

This means that land has now been taken out of the Green Belt at Odd Down in order to provide housing.

Proposed housing plan for South Stoke Plateau
The deadline for any legal challenge to this decision expires on 21 August 2014. No funding has been found to pay for legal advice or to cover the costs of challenging the decision by Judicial Review.

We have written to Eric Pickles and to his Minister, inviting them to intervene, but no response has been received.

Without a legal remedy or political intervention by central government, we are looking at the next stage in the process which is the “Master Plan”.

We intend to oppose any further development to the land which has been removed from the Green Belt and to ensure that the developer complies with the conditions for development, by participating in this process, together with the Parish Councils of South Stoke and Combe Hay.

If you would like to find out more and assist SOBA with its campaign, please come to the next meeting on 2 September 2014 at 7pm in South Stoke Village Hall.
