In order to meet the future need for water, we want to build a second reservoir locally, called Cheddar Reservoir Two.
Having undertaken initial investigations, we designed a scheme and developed a planning application that was submitted to Sedgemoor District Council in December 2013.
We understand the importance of this scheme in relation to the local community and environment. From the start, we have been fully committed to working with local residents and key stakeholders to deliver the best possible scheme for the local area as set out in our ‘Vision Statement’. A key part of the planning process was an extensive consultation with the community that helped shape the plans before they were finalised.
The application has been submitted to Sedgemoor District Council. All the documents are available to view on the Council website: http://www.sedgemoor.gov.uk/planning%20online/(S(ekrpbzmfjc0poumc11z3wlfp))/enl.aspx. The application number is 17/13/0080.
