The next stage of the Consultation Process, for the North Ward, started Thursday night at the Wookey Hole Community Hall.
Changes made in 2012 to the UK planning laws mean that even small communities are now being asked for their views. What does your community think about flooding; about building a new school; about traffic; for example.
Unlike the neighbouring villages of Priddy and Westbury-sub-Mendip, Wookey Hole is not a parish in its own right, with its own council, but a small part of the much larger parish of St Cuthbert Out. In fact until very recently the community was often thought of as a collection of small hamlets, and not actually as one community.
