Plans have been submitted to Mendip District Council for a new farm shop and cafe to be built in a hamlet on the edge of Glastonbury.

A planning application for the building of a farm shop and cafe with associated kitchen, store and toilets at Middlewick Farm, Wick Lane, Wick, has been submitted by Mr and Mrs Barker.

Middlewick Farm already has a small farm shop with takeaway cafe at the site, along with 25 holiday rooms, function room and indoor swimming pool.

However, this farm shop will be larger and include a sit-down cafe with views across the countryside, and will be open to the general public.

Middlewick Farm has a focus on sustainability, with a biomass boiler and electric car charging points already installed, and the new farm shop would have solar panels on the roof and full-height windows to maximise natural light and minimise the need for artificial lighting.

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

Installation of 28-panel/9.7KW solar PV system to south facing roof on outbuilding (amended application form received November 12) at Higher South Town Farm, Southtown Lane, West Pennard, is wanted by Mr David Powell.

Works to trees in a conservation area - T1 (holly) reduce crown by 40 per cent at Abbey Grange, 19 Magdalene Street, Glastonbury, have been applied for by Dr Timothy Hopkinson-Ball.
