Hundreds more houses could be built next to Weston-super-Mare’s Locking Parklands development.

An outline planning application for 300 more homes alongside the Parklands has been submitted to North Somerset Council by St Modwen Developments.

St Modwen already has planning permission for 1,450 houses in other phases of its Locking Parklands development.

The council has also granted Mead Realisations permission for a 1,150-home development off Wolvershill Road – to the north east of Locking Parklands between Weston and Banwell.

If approved this application will bring the number of homes within the Locking Parklands zone to 2,900 – with a further 900 houses under construction at nearby Haywood Village.

The latest planning application’s design and access statement says it will provide a ‘mixture of homes’ which will cater for ‘single people right through to large families’.

It adds: “The site will integrate with surrounding planned developments within the Weston Villages, together with contributing to the council’s housing requirement and five-year housing supply.”

The statement also says homes will be ‘well connected’ to shops, schools, services and jobs, with the new £10million north-to-south spine road used as the main point of access.
