Local Plan 2038

Planning applications

Developer contributions

I hosted an online public meeting on 25th August to discuss housing and planning in Yatton and the emerging Local Plan. I shared this slide presentation and link to a planning map


Curo’s Reserved Matters application received planning approval on 1st July and will take roughly three years to build out once work starts in September (after the Arnolds Way roundabout is enlarged to accommodate a 5th ‘arm’). The development of 154 homes will be known as Eaton Park. Given my original opposition to development on this site (which was granted outline permission for ‘up to 170 homes’ in March 2016) we pushed Curo to significantly improve the plans as originally submitted. I want to look ahead and am pleased this site will be built out by Curo and deliver 46 much-needed affordable homes to the village – 82% for social rent and 18% for shared ownership. I also welcome Curo’s on-going commitment to close working relationships with the community. The timeline looks something like this, but is very fluid given the current circumstances.

  • Sept 2020 – Roundabout works complete
  • Sept 2020 – Work begins on residential site
  • May 2021 – First homes ready for occupation
  • Nov 2023 – All homes built out

Diverse Partnerships Yatton Ltd is proposing a development of 34 homes on land off Stowey Road, next to Hangstones.

Before the end of the year I am anticipating a detailed planning application for residential development at Boxbush Farm. This has already been through the ‘pre-app’ stage and I met the developer on site in January.
