I am tracking the following planning applications.

Sainsbury’s Yatton – I very much welcome a proposal for a new concept Sainsbury’s store in Yatton (located on the site currently occupied by the Michael Burdge agricultural machinery business). We desperately need an offer like this at North End and I believe Yatton and the surrounding area can sustain a new store – and not negatively impact the exisiting Co-op or our valued local independent businesses. Sainsbury’s has submitted a planning application to NSC, which is open for public comment as part of the statutory planning process.

    A very useful website with great facts on the current Covid situation locally.
    However, it would make more sense if, in addition to total cases, we could see the number of hospital admissions; number of deaths; how many are over 65 or with pre-existing health problems, and also how many cases of flu & pneumonia resulting in hospitalisation occurred locally at the same time?
    We need the full picture.

    Hi Steve,
    Now that the building in Strawberry Drive has finished there appears to be one small area that is in no mans land as it were. There is a strip between the houses in Strawberry Drive and the houses in Lodge Close, I believe that it is the responsibility of the new development but seems to be left as if it were scrap land and is very overgrown.
    I have been hacking down all the weeds abutting my property ie no 7 Lodge Close but shouldn’t it be the upkeep of the building/management company. Your help would be appreciated.

  3. Hi Steve,
    The weed sprayer drove along the high street this morning, spraying weeds on the pavement during the school run (1st October) It was literally spraying between people walking their children to school. If this spraying is really still going on, please can you let me know who to contact about a) the need to spray weedkiller in October when the annual weeds are dying down and they would have seeded already anyway and b) doing it during the busy school run.

      Hi Anja… apologies, just picked this up. Obviously too late on this occasion but this isn’t acceptable at all, so I will take this up with the appropriate officer and report back to you.

      Hi Steve,
      I am just enquiring as to the new speed restrictions on North end road after the roundabout towards The Bridge Inn.
      Is this speed limit not being reduced to 30?
      It seems ridiculous in the new road surfacing works recently that it has been marked at 40, this is too high for this road, it’s so dangerous.
      Where is the new crossing going? I thought it was after the roundabout on this stretch of road?
      The pavements were recently cleared but nothing after half way along this end of North end road. The pavement towards the Bridge Inn is dangerous and overgrown and also very very untidy. This again forces people to single file walk along the pavement and will eventually cause another accident. Once the new development works at Chestnut park this is going to be a footpath to join North end road, if families walk this way to go to The Bridge Inn with the 40 speed limit and overgrown pavements this is a disaster in the making. Locals have to cross the road at that point to walk along, with a blind bend at the farm 40 is too high.
      What is your view is it being looked into?

    I’ll email you.

    On Sunday I walked with Fred on the path from Wheatear Road to the Strawberry Line. It was very obvious that horses had been ridden along there, it is a bit more visible than dog poo!! Where does the council stand on this being used as a bridle path?
