Planning Applications


In light of the suspension of normal Parish Council meetings due to the current coronavirus restrictions, details of current local planning applications will be published here together with the councils response to each.

  • Planning Application Reference 41/20/0002
    Erection of extension to an agricultural building for the housing of livestock at Rock Farm, Tolland Road, Tolland, Lydeard St Lawrence
  • 16th May 2020: The Parish Council are considering this application.
  • Planning Application Reference 22/20/0006/LB
    Various internal and external alterations at Hoccombe Mill, Hoccombe Road, Lydeard St Lawrence (retention of works already undertaken)
  • 7th May 2020: Lydeard St Lawrence and Tolland Parish Council has no objection to the above planning application.
  • Planning Application Reference 11/20/0003
    Erection of 1 No. temporary rural workers dwelling for residential use for forestry workers at Hollycombe, Combe Florey
  • 7th May 2020: The Parish Council has no objection to this application. However they do have concerns regarding vehicles bringing in supplies of timber. There have been a number of deliveries of timber recently by lorry, given the destruction of Nethercott Lane by large vehicles maybe thought should be given to the protection of the road between Lydeard St. Lawrence and Combe Florey (Tower Road), so this does not end up being destroyed as well.
