Ashcombe pub site finally set for redevelopment?

EIGHT houses could be built at the former site of Ashcombe pub in Weston-super-Mare – four years after it shut down.
But now full planning permission is being sought to build eight houses on the plot. Saunders Brothers Limited Liability Partnership (LLP), which is based in Hutton, has applied to build eight three-bedroom houses at the Ashcombe Road site.
The design and access statement says: “(The pub) has previously been demolished and is ready for re-development.”
The proposal says the design takes into account the character of other properties in the road and the nearby environment.
It also says: “The position of the properties and windows will not adversely affect the amenity of neighbouring properties through overlooking.”
The houses will be three storeys and a maximum of two off-street parking spaces will be provided for each house, with driveways and garages planned.
The buildings will be a mixture of stone, render and brick with concrete roof tiles.
Weston central ward councillor Richard Nightingale said: “I am absolutely delighted we will soon see development at the Ashcombe pub site.
“It would seem another Weston site has been earmarked for investment, which speaks volumes about the growing confidence in our town.
“Though the proposal is at an early stage and yet to be fully considered, we must make sure the scheme will enhance the local area and there is full consultation with residents.”
