Round up – September 2018

Bite-sized updates on things you may have missed…

Yatton Neighbourhood Plan:  Provisionally, North Somerset Council (NSC) will consider the Neighbourhood Plan at a full council meeting on 16 October.
Local Plan:  NSC is inviting views on their Local Plan 2036 – Issues and Options document. The 3 month consultation will end at midday on 10 December. Planners are preparing a new Local Plan which will provide detailed policies and additional housing, employment and other land allocations up to 2036. It will review and roll-forward policies and allocations in existing development plan documents and plan for the amount of housing, jobs and infrastructure set out in the Joint Spatial Plan (JSP).
Claverham: On 3 Sept, Yatton Parish Council recommended supporting Newland Homes’s amended plans to build 77 homes on the former UTAS Claverham Works site. The Parish Council noted the development is compatible with the Claverham Neighbourhood Plan and that the developer had responded to the objections of residents.
Titan Ladders: While development on this brownfield site is welcome… disappointingly, the amended proposal to build 37 homes on the now disused site at 195-201 Mendip Road still suggests that the road will not be adopted by NSC.

Roman burial site: on 28 August I got back in touch with Cat Lodge, the archaeologist at NSC. The excavation on the Bloor 2 site is complete… but Cat cannot get any further detail as the ‘post-excavation’ work has yet to begin. I’m promised more news soon – including the possibility of a public update.
Yatton station:

Parish councillors Jonathan Edwards, David Crossman, Chris Jackson, Robert Jenner and the Clerk met a representative from First Western Railway on 30 May. It was ascertained that Network Rail were still working with Newland Homes on the development of the former Jewson’s site and there was progress in the planning process. He assured Councillors that the upgrading of the car park would be a condition of planning and that there would not be any reduction in the number of parking spaces. The possible use of additional land for parking was discussed with the most promising area being along the side of the track off the unmade part of the car park. It was not envisaged that there would be progress until a planning application came forward.
