Council to debate garden village plans

PUBLISHED: 17:00 04 January 2018


A North Somerset parish council will debate plans to build thousands of houses across the district over the next two decades.

Banwell Parish Council will deliver its verdict on the Joint Spatial Plan (JSP) at its meeting on Monday.

The JSP, which has been formulated by North Somerset Council and other local authorities in the West Country, proposes to create a 1,900-home ‘garden village’ near Banwell.

A development of 2,800 houses has also been proposed for nearby Churchill and Langford, with many expressing concern over how it could shape the future of North Somerset.

Banwell residents will have an opportunity to speak at the meeting, which will be held at the village hall in Westfield Cresent at 7.30pm, prior to the plan being debated by councillors.

After the discussion, the parish council will submit its response to the JSP as part of a consultation which closes on Wednesday.
