Welcome to the Sulis Down website. We have submitted a planning application to Bath and North East Somerset Council which we hope will be determined in Spring 2018.
The team proposing the new Sulis Down community acknowledge that this is a very special location. It is the edge of a World Heritage City, adjacent to the Green Belt designation and the South Stoke Conservation Area. It also presents the opportunity to deliver a bespoke neighbourhood specific for the setting.
The Hignett Family Trust and Bloor Homes have decided to undertake a further phase of public consultation that will aim to gauge local views and reflect current planning policies for the site.
During 2014 and 2015 The Hignett Family Trust and Bloor homes undertook a series of public consultation events in order to guide the proposals. The local community was consulted through a number of public exhibitions and community workshops.
After careful consideration of the consultation responses, The Hignett Family Trust and Bloor Homes have decided to undertake a further phase of public consultation that will aim to gauge local views and reflect current planning policies for the site. It is their intention to focus initially on preparing a detailed planning application for the western part of Sulis Down only and will be consulting on the plans for the area to the west of Sulis Manor during the Autumn of 2016, with a view to having a planning application ready to submit by early 2017. Once a date has been discussed with B&NES they will write to the community with details of this event.
