  • Overview

    Land at Station Road

    This is a greenfield site located to the east of the town comprising of some 50.32 hectares (124.3 acres) of land lying between the A30 Yeovil road and the A356 Station Road to the south. The northern part adjoins the A30 and lies to the east of the town cemetery. This is the highest part of the site at the top of a scarp slope, which runs roughly east-west.

    Taylor Wimpey benefits from two extant planning permissions at Crewkerne, the original outline for 525 dwellings plus a second outline which covers part of the original outline employment area for 110 dwellings.

    Taylor Wimpey have Reserved Matters consent for 110 homes, 17 of which will be affordable, on the southern part of the overall site, access from Station Road. This will be the first phase of the development, allowing to a start of the link road through the site, as well as servicing the employment land and care home.

  • About the site

    About the site

    The central part of the site includes the scarp slope with the lowest lying parts of the site mainly grassland. A corridor of open countryside extends westwards from the site boundary into the town centre.

    The central part of the site would be retained for informal recreation. New balancing ponds associated with the drainage of the site would be located in the northeast corner and southern parts of the site and these will be designed to attract wildlife. In addition to the informal recreation provision there will also be a community sports area including a playing pitch.

    The southern part of the site comprises of overgrown fields which gradually slope up to the southern boundary at the A356, from the watercourse at the valley floor. Hedgerows define the fields across the valley floor. One watercourse runs through the site known as Viney Brook and comprises a north flowing stream segment located in the south west corner of the site.

    Crewkerne itself is a thriving market town, with local facilities including shops, supermarkets, cafes, banks and a post office.
