CONSTRUCTION for 77 new homes will begin at Weston's Mead Fields next spring.

Award-winning housebuilder Backhouse has outline planning permission and has completed the land purchase for the houses, which will feature one, two, three, and four-bedroom properties.

Work will begin in Spring 2024, with homes available for reservation by Autumn 2024.

The site will come complete with electric vehicle charging points and water butts. On top of this, there will be solar panels installed on selected plots and plenty of public space around the the wider site.

Bat, bird and bug boxes will be installed and native trees will be planted to help support the ecosystem.

The plans form part of a wider neighbourhood of 1,400 new homes granted planning permission by North Somerset Council, with proposals for new community amenities including a primary school, public open space, and sports facilities.

Michelle Hyde, development director at Backhouse said: “We are delighted to have secured this scheme to add our bespoke homes to the new community of Mead Fields.

"Backhouse remains committed to securing prime land deals to meet the growing demand for housing.”

Backhouse also wishes to thank its long-standing partner, Cheyne Capital, for helping to navigate challenges and recognise opportunities.
