End of the saga?
Yesterday Somerset County Council granted planning permission for the new school in Somerton.
Although ultimately it is SCC’s decision to make, the fact is that South Somerset District Council’s planning officer recommended refusal.
So SCC withdrew the application beofre SSDC had time to formally consider it.
In the SCC Regulation Committee yesterday the objections of SSDC were brushed aside. The report to the Committee dismissed them as misunderstandings.
SCC formally ratified the planning consent and now the actual process of building the school can begin.
And Somerton will get the new school it so desperately needs.
