Hopkins Developments Ltd
Residential Development of 55 dwellings, relocation of NHS parking and public open space
Land adjacent to Wincanton Community Hospital
We are in the process of promoting a number of separate sites in Wincanton and the surrounding areas, for residential and commercial development via detailed and outline planning applications.
One development with a long planning history included land to the end of Dancing Lane, in Wincanton to the rear of Wincanton Community Hospital.
There were two previous applications for outline planning permission on the site, one which was subject to an appeal in 2012, and subsequently was dismissed. We then progressed to a High Court challenge in which the judge quashed the appeal decision. However, the Secretary of State appealed this to the Court of Appeal, who reversed this decision back. In light of this, the appellant withdrew its legal challenge to the August 2012 decision letter.
A secondary application which had yet to be determined by the council was subsequently taken to appeal on behalf of HDL for up to 55 dwellings, access works, relocation of NHS parking and a large level of open space. Grass Roots Planning successfully won this secondary appeal at Inquiry with the Inspector determining that the previous reasons for refusal had been addressed in relation to amenity, access for the NHS, the continued safe operation of the hospital, sustainability, and highways safety
