A piece of land in Blagdon will not be allocated for housing in the Joint Spatial Plan (JSP), according to North Somerset Council officers.

The authority has ruled out Station Road as a possible site for development as it is an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB).

Villagers were concerned about the future of the land, which is located in the Mendip Hills.

In an email to Blagdon village’s website, Natalie Richards, from North Somerset Council, wrote: “I can confirm the site you were concerned about has been discounted from stage one of the process given its location within the Mendip Hills Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

“The site will not be considered further by the council for any form of development at this stage.”

A total of 25,000 homes earmarked for North Somerset in the JSP, including 1,900 near Banwell, and 2,675 outside Churchill.
