People's views are being sought on the latest changes to plans which set out where houses and businesses can be built in parts of south Somerset.

Two sites are being looked at, at Keyford and Upper Mudford, on the outskirts of Yeovil.

Together they are expected to deliver about 1,500 homes, employment land, and health and education facilities.

Two drop-in sessions are planned at the South Somerset District Council's offices in Brympton Way, Yeovil.

Landscaping requirements

Both are being held between 15:00 and 19:00 BST.

The government planning inspector who has to sign off the Local Plan asked the authority to make four more changes to it.

They included introducing landscaping requirements for any new homes built to the south and north of Yeovil.

Council officers and developers will be available to answer questions about the Keyford site on 1 September and the Upper Mudford plans on 2 September.

Councillor Tim Carroll, who is responsible for planning, said details of the Local Plan would be finalised over the next few weeks.

"Local views are important to this process and the intention is to work with the developers to reach consensus and deliver higher quality development on these sites," he said.
