Latest from the Mayday Saxonvale planning application decision

Following a momentous decision for Frome from the planning board on Wednesday night where the Mayday Saxonvale application was approved subject to condition, the Chair of Frome Town Council Planning Committee, Cllr Steve Tanner said:

“I would like to thank the members of the Planning Board for their in-depth and detailed consideration of the Mayday Saxonvale application and also their passionate questioning of the officer recommendations.  The level of the public support was also unprecedented and showed representation at its best, with the councillors really putting what was best for Frome at the heart of the decision, and acknowledging that the needs of Frome have changed.

I would also like to congratulate the team at Mayday Saxonvale, the plan has certainly captured the imagination of the town as can be seen by the level of support.  Wednesday night was a good step forward and we now call on the officers at Mendip and Somerset councils to fully engage with the team to enable this clearly popular development turn from a dream into a reality for the residents of Frome, to make a thriving town centre that we can all be rightly proud off.”
