Planning Applications for Wellington

What makes a place special?

What business would you miss most if it vanished from your town?

Do you believe “official looking” notices – however silly they are?

We’re  re-designing Wellington as part of a Geography / Art project.

Plans for new buildings and changes to existing ones have been drawn up. Look out for our “planning notices.” If you see one, please get in touch with your comments. The map below shows the location of the notices.

Members of the public, this notice is to inform you that on the 12/5/2011 Waitrose will be renovated into a wonderful goat training centre and ostrich racing track. It will be helpful for all the Somerset farmers to help make their goats obedient.

Ostrich racing should bring in the crowds!

The Wellington museum will be knocked down because it is an eyesore. It will be replaced by a Tony Pryce sport shop.

Kings Arms

The Kings Arms into a 3 storey bouncy castle.

We intend to do this for all the children in the area; we need more children facilities for parents to drop their children off while shopping.

We don’t need the Kings Arms because there are too many drunks walking around Wellington scaring little children.

We understand that people will be out of a job but we can easily arrange for them to work in other pubs or hotel bars.

Wellington School

Our proposal is to turn Wellington School into a Court Fields Sixth Form extension. The reason for this is because Court Fields have been waiting for an extension for ages, so we have granted their wish. Another reason for this is because the site is big enough and the students from Wellington School can still attend.

If you disagree, please see our website

“an excellent idea”

Corn Hill Arcade

To change Corn Hill Arcade into a French Restaurant.

We intend to do this to encourage outsiders to come and eat in this fancy French style diner.

The Corn Hill Arcade has `true trends` in it but they can be located into another building.

The Arcade has such a look about it that a restaurant would be a great step up for Wellington.


“Allo allo”

Lloyds bank

The public will use the Wellington Football Pitch Car Park and Lloyds bank will be closed on the 21st Of May onwards and further construction will be taken from that point.

Banks to burgers…

Nat West Bank

We are proposing to change NatWest, Fore Street, into ‘Wellington reptile house’. The reptile house will be funded by Amphibian.Inc; and NatWest plan to be moving to Swansea. Sorry for any inconvenience.

“We have contacted our security department”

Sportsmans Arms

We are planning on changing the Sportsman’s Arms on Station Road into Gamestation,
And the reason for this is because people have to travel to Taunton or other places to buy games or a games console.

The Wellesley

The Wellesley Cinema into a 9 screen multiplex.

We intend to do this because The Wellesley Cinema can only show one film at a time and one film only stays for about a week.

If we change it into a multiplex they will be able to show film for a number of weeks.

When the multiplex is finished and open, Wellington will become a much more popular place.

The best loved building in town?

The Monument

The Monument is being knocked down because it’s falling down and it is a dangerous hazard. It will be replaced with a new and safe Monument that you will be able to go in. It will be made of stone but painted multi-coloured.

Health and safety?

May 10, 2011 / admin

The Chocolate Box

Our proposal is to turn The Chocolate Box into a KFC. The reason for this is because Wellington does not have a fast food takeaway and we have a lot of cafes. I f you disagree with this please tell us on our website.

Do you take your local independent shops for granted?

May 10, 2011 / admin

South Street

The South Street independence flags to be taken down.

We are sorry to say but we have to take down the South Street yellow flags due to the rest of the town shop owners feeling excluded from that side of town.

We don’t want any fights to occur within town.
This option is safer for the town.

Sorry. Thanks

Boots will be turned into a tattoo shop as people have to travel out of town to get tattoos.

Tonedale Mill into a detention centre

To convert Tonedale Mill into a high security detention centre. Due to high crime rates in the surrounding areas, and many formal complaints about the lack of detention and/or juvenile halls, the council have decided to convert the mill into a prison.
