Wells Town Council is developing a Neighbourhood Plan

For more information Here

Wells-next-the-Sea Neighbourhood Plan ‘Call for Sites’
Deadline 5pm on 30th June 2021

​As part of the Neighbourhood Plan, it is important for the Neighbourhood Plan Working Party to consider the merits of making site allocations for development up to 2041 in and around the town for a wide range of land uses (not just housing).

If you are a landowner and wish your land to be considered for allocation in the Neighbourhood Plan, then please get involved in our Neighbourhood Plan ‘Call for Sites’. We are primarily looking for sites for affordable housing that will meet local needs. However, if you have aspirations for alternative uses then we would also like to hear from you. In particular, we would welcome details of land that you may wish to see taken forward to provide wider community benefit or would involve the regeneration of a currently underused or derelict site. This could include new retail or employment development, as well as space for community facilities such as children’s play areas, community woodland, allotments or areas to be identified for purposes such as leisure facilities or educational use. These are examples only and all ideas would be considered.

If you have potential sites that are within or directly adjacent to the existing boundary of the town then please submit your site as part of this Neighbourhood Plan ‘Call for Sites’ by 5pm on 30th June 2021.  Please read the guidance notes and use the site submission form below.

We require all submissions to be in writing, including all information requested. These can be emailed to: [email protected] or a paper copy sent to the Town Council Offices.
