Problems for Horlicks site
6:00am Sunday 12th August 2012 in News
ANY thoughts the former Horlicks site in Ilminster could be used for housing seem to have been washed away due to flooding.
South Somerset District Council leader Cllr Ric Pallister has said that flooding issues existed with the Horlicks site and that the council was 'hugely constrained on what we can do there.'
He added: “It is also a long from the town centre and people would be jumping into their cars to go to town and that would lead to traffic problems.”
The site at Hort Bridge in Station Road has become derelict since Horlicks Farms and Dairies closed its cheese production factory there in 2001.
