Plans have been submitted to Mendip District Council for the building of a house at the end of a disused access track in Wells.

A planning application for the building of a two-bedroom dwelling behind 72 Portway, Wells, has been submitted by Neil Harris.

The proposal is to build the home on a disused access track that runs from the end of Lethbridge Road behind numbers 64 to 72 Portway.

The track was originally used by the estate developers in the 1960s and 1970s, but it fell into disuse and was subsequently acquired by the applicant.

A car port currently serving 72 Portway would be demolished to make way for the new house that would mainly be built on the access track, but would also take up part of the garden of 72 Portway.

Other planning applications in the Wells area that have been submitted to Mendip District Council this week include:

Side and rear extensions to existing dwelling, and installation of cladding to dwelling at Le Brace, Emborough Pond Lane, Emborough, are wanted by Mr David Kimber.
