Local residents argued against Gladman Homes' plan to build off Chestnut Drive, and the developer eventually scrapped its plan.

Local residents argued against Gladman Homes' plan to build off Chestnut Drive, and the developer eventually scrapped its plan.


Claverham’s new neighbourhood plan has taken a step closer to becoming a reality.

Yatton Parish Council has backed the draft document and the plan will go to North Somerset Council for further scrutiny and consultation.

The plan will, if approved, help shape how the village develops for years to come.

It emphasises the need for any house building to be carried out in a sustainable fashion, while arguing it is important not to merge with Cleeve.

Work on the plan began in earnest after Gladman Homes Ltd unveiled proposals to build homes in the village.

Its desire to build 70 homes off Chestnut Drive saw it apply for planning permission from North Somerset Council, but it withdrew its application last September.
