More houses could be built in West Wick.


More than 50 new homes have been planned for West Wick, next to some of the existing housing estates.

Strongvox Ltd has applied to North Somerset Council for planning permission to build 51 homes north of Wilson Gardens and Scot Elm Drive.

The planning application says the aim is to create ‘high-quality’ homes alongside a ‘wildlife zone’ and trees to screen it from the road.

The planning application says: “The layout has been designed to promote a vibrant and busy community within the development.”

The wildlife zone would be a grass area, surrounded by trees.

The application says the roads will be curved so they do not become ‘highways’ straight through the site.

The plans include five flats, 23 two-bedroom homes and 14 houses with three bedrooms. There will also be some four-bed houses.

Each house would have its own parking space, as well as a space for visitors.

To see the application, and to submit a comment, search for 17/P/0752/F on the council’s planning portal at www.n-somerset.gov.uk
