PLANS for 71 new homes in Minehead look set to be approved at a crunch meeting being held today (Thursday, February 22). The homes in question are earmarked for land off Hopcott Road and include 25 affordable houses with a mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes proposed. Although the plans are recommended for approval, Minehead Town Council is against the plan, which also received 14 letters of objection.
YOUNG people with learning disabilities have teamed up with four top chefs to prepare and serve a fine dining experience for hospitality leaders from across the South West. The dinner took place at the four-star Castle Hotel in Taunton with students from Minehead's Foxes Academy helping out. Foxes Academy is a hospitality and catering training hotel for young people with learning disabilities and featured in Channel 5's The Special Needs Hotel last year.
UP to 400 homes could be built on land off Quantock Road in Wembdon, Bridgwater, it has been revealed. Major developer Persimmon Homes Severn Valley has submitted an 'scoping opinion' request for an Environmental Impact Assessment - the preliminary step before putting in a major application. A spokesman for Persimmon Homes said: "Persimmon Homes Severn Valley will submit an outline planning application in 2018 to Sedgemoor District Council (SDC) for a development at Quantock Road, Bridgwater."

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
