Wessex House, Somerton


wessex-house-somertonThe site had two previous refusals of planning permission for the redevelopment of the existing care home to 37 extra care apartments and communal facilities on design grounds.

Tetlow King Planning (TKP) worked with the architects KWL to overcome the reasons for refusal and submit a planning appeal against South Somerset’s decision.

TKP were able to provide evidence on the benefits of extra care, the jobs which would be created and the improvement on the vacant buildings which were on the site.

The appeal was allowed and can viewed here.
