Villagers in Claverham have just 48 hours left to make comments about a neighbourhood plan which will shape the area’s future.

Volunteers have worked with North Somerset Council for more than a year to produce a plan which details what development the village would be willing to accept going forward.

Villagers are keen to protect the boundary between Claverham and Cleeve and the plan, if adopted, should help provide extra protection.

The plan is available to view at Yatton Parish Council’s office, libraries in Weston and Congresbury or on North Somerset Council’s website.

The consultation deadline is midnight on Friday and people can offer their views through North Somerset’s website, by emailing planning.policy@n-somerset.gov.uk or by posting written views to the planning policy team at Weston Town Hall.

The plan will subsequently be reviewed by an independent inspector before a referendum is held where people can vote for or against the plan being adopted.
