Town Park – a step nearer
Midsomer Norton Town Council is seeking to create a Town Park on land east of Gullocks Tyning – the diagram below is an illustration of what the Park might look like- click on the image to see a larger version on your screen. The final design of the Town Park will be subject to consultation and this is only a CONCEPT.
The Town Council successfully applied for a change of use with the Local Planning Authority in 2014 and completed the purchase of the land to the south of the River Somer in February 2016. Detailed planning permission to create the Park will be sought as the project evolves and conditions on the change of use covering drainage, ecology and soil condition will be addressed. It is likely that a project management service will be sought in a competitive tendering exercise to take the work forward including undertaking the required surveys and the necessary planning permissions along with designing the elements of the Park.
