Villagers in Yatton have voted overwhelmingly in favour of adopting a neighbourhood plan.
More than 1,000 people supported the idea in yesterday’s (Thursday’s) referendum.
The document outlines acceptable development areas – providing greater defence against areas people wish to see protected – and aims to ensure Yatton’s future prosperity.
In total, 1,103 people voted, with 1,015 in support of the plan, equating to 92 per cent of voters.
The referendum turnout was 23 per cent.

By adopting a neighbourhood plan, the village will be entitled to a greater proportion of contributions made to the community by developers – something which will likely be welcomed in Yatton with several housing estates under construction or in the pipeline.
Bloor Homes is building more than 200 homes at North End, with a separate development planned off the same Arnolds Way roundabout.
