Housing in Butleigh is affected by the Mendip Local Plan. This is under review and as such Mendip District Council has published a schedule of Main Modifications. The schedule sets out additional policies, revisions to existing policies and new development sites considered necessary to make the plan sound. The Parish Council has received two documents from Mendip District Council. The first is an information document on proposed modifications and includes various links to information that you might find useful.

There are developments under consideration in Butleigh and in particular a development of houses on some land off Sub Road. Initially this plan was recommended for rejection by the Parish Council and the plan was also rejected by Mendip District Council.
The developer has lodged an appeal against the rejection and has made some changes to the plans. Recently the Parish Council had an Extra Meeting to discuss some ideas and plans for the developer to consider should the appeal be successful. These include footpaths around Holm Oaks Play Park together with low level lighting. Refurbishment and upkeep of the play park going forward also formed part of the discussions.
Mendip District Council have provided details of the appeal and this information can be found by clicking on the link below
