Estate of more than 40 houses ‘will fit well’ in Churchill and Langford, developer says

An estate of more than 40 homes ‘will fit well’ within a North Somerset village according to the developer, despite concerns from residents.

Bellway Homes secured outline planning permission last year to build up to 43 houses off Says Lane near the A38 in Langford, and is now in discussions with North Somerset Council to finalise its plans.

Rachel Way, of Bellway Homes, said Langford ‘appeals to a variety of people’ due to its proximity to Bristol, but there is a shortage of homes.

She added: “The homes in the village have influenced our designs so we feel the development will fit well within the village. We are looking forward to receiving feedback on our plans.”

But a Churchill and Langford Parish Council spokesman said: “This is an unsustainable development outside the settlement boundary of a designated service village on prime agricultural land in a sensitive location.”
