South Somerset District Council instruct Avalon for Historic Environment Assessment

June 2020

Avalon Planning & Heritage has been commissioned by South Somerset District Council to produce a series of Historic Environment Assessments (HEAs) for a number of site allocations which have been identified as part of the Preferred Options Local Plan Review 2016-2036. The HEAs will help identify how the surrounding historic buildings and townscapes are sensitive to change and how new development can be harnessed to contribute to local enhancement and placemaking. We anticipate that the HEAs will become an indispensable reference and guidance tool for officers, developers and members of the public as the allocations progress and undergo Examination in Public and come forward for development in due course.
