Wincanton building plans rejected

Government officials have rejected a proposal to build 55 homes close to Wincanton Community Hospital. South Somerset District Council rejected the initial application, while an appeal by Hopkins Development Limited fell on deaf government ears.

Concerns were raised about the proposal’s impact on the hospital, and the potential closure of the hospital while work was being completed. Wincanton mayor Colin Winder still has his concerns, stating: “We won the appeal but that was just one battle”
