More than 100 houses could be built in a Somerset village, plans have revealed.

Gladham Developments Limited is asking Sedgemoor District Council whether it needs to carry out an environment impact assessment on land to the west of Lower New Road in Cheddar.

The developers are looking to build 115 homes on the site, which is around the corner from 23 new homes in Sharpham Road, which were completed in 2016, and the 90-home Bloor Home development off Upper New Road which is under construction.

The site will include two play facilities, road and pedestrian access, public open spaces and parking, if planning permission is subsequently sought and approved by the council.

The new plans will join four others which are already being reviewed by the district authority, totalling more than 300 homes.
