In planning news in and around Frome this week.

Asda supermarket on Warminster Road in Frome has three years to complete an application to make what it calls improvements to the existing home shopping scheme at the site.

It has got approval with conditions to move the Click and Collect system to another part of the car park, and to increase the number of bays for cars. In what the supermarket calls a new 'external home shopping pod' it will be installing a huge new chiller (290 sq.ft/27 m²) and a new freezer and putting in netting to protect the area from birds. It will be increasing the number of parking bays from two to five.

In addition to having to complete the work in a designated time frame, Asda will have to first create new parking spaces for those that will be lost when the home shopping area is moved.

The owners of Phoenix House, Flat 1 Dommetts Lane in Frome BA11 4JT have applied to work on several trees at the property, including felling a cherry tree there. Ref. No: 2020/1810/TCA on the Mendip planning site.
