We don’t yet know when the Selwood Garden Community planning application will be brought before the Planning Board, but whenever that is we want to make good and sure that the Mendip District Councillors making that decision have the people of Frome in the forefront of their minds when they vote.

In addition to making your objection – we are asking you to send a message to Mendip District Council Planning Board asking them firmly but politely to confirm that they intend to read and take notice of every objection that has been sent in.
