In planning news in and around Frome this week:

In a sign that it is not far off opening, the new B&Q Express store due to open in January 2022, has applied to put up some signs on the site on the approach to the railway station. The company wants to install three illuminated and four non-illuminated signs. Details under Ref. No: 2021/2574/ADV.

In a planning decision made over in Mendip, the cafe that is used by taxi drivers at Station Approach in Frome, close to that B&Q store, has been awarded a change of use. The owner, who has been operating the cafe since 2013, said in the application that she was told by the previous owner that the relevant planning permissions had been obtained. She did not need to apply for planning permission for the unit, but needed to apply for change of use. She wrote : " The cafe offers a takeaway service and has seating inside for eight. The cafe caters for rail users and provides a service for the light industrial units nearby, for taxi drivers and also for the Frome community that can afford to eat and drink here rather than other cafes in Frome which are more expensive and may not be accessible to our clients. "

Prior approval is being sought for for prior notification of agricultural development for a proposed building at Red Tuns Farm on Foghamshire Lane in Trudoxhill. Details under Ref. No: 2021/2659/AGB .

Along Orchard Street in Frome, an application is in to prune a Yew tree at Smiths Orchard, details under Ref. No: 2021/2414/TCA.

In Leigh on Mendip, an application is in to build three single storey three bedroomed homes on land South of Apple Meadow View Park Hayes Leigh. Those plans can be viewed under reference, 2021/2649/FUL .
