Sedgemoor District Council (Huntspill Energy Park Link Road) Compulsory Purchase Order 2018 (“the Order”)

In exercise of powers delegated to him by the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, on 25 March 2019 the Inspector confirmed the Order.

On 13 November 2020, the Council executed a general vesting declaration, vesting the land described in Schedule 1 of the general vesting declaration in the Council at the end of 3 months from the service of the notices. The Council confirmed that the vesting date was 25 February 2021.

The effect of the general vesting declaration is that at the end of the period set out above, the land will be owned by the Council, and any interests will be converted to a right to compensation.

The Order is required to allow construction of a new link road that will provide a village bypass and allow the redevelopment and improvement of the former Royal Ordnance Factory site to the north of Woolavington Road at Puriton, Bridgwater (now called Gravity). The execution of the general vesting declaration will allow the Council to acquire any remaining interests required to allow Gravity Limited to deliver the Huntspill Energy Park Link Road.
