A developer has promised hundreds of thousands of pounds to a North Somerset village to improve infrastructure.
Bellway will build 44 homes east of Wolvershill Road in Banwell, and has revealed it has pledged £221,071 in section 106 contributions which will be used for funding village services and improving leisure facilities.
Bellway has taken on the site from Strongvox Homes, which secured outline planning permission in 2017, and Bellway has now submitted reserved matters to finalise the plans.
Senior land manager Adam Ryan said: “We have been carefully developing the plans and are confident these new homes will meet people’s needs.
“We are committed to creating thriving communities as well as building new homes, and as part of this we will be making significant investment in the local area.
“We hope our application will be approved, so we can move forward with construction.”
