The Uplands Plan Submitted
The plan to develop houses on the land South of the Uplands have now been submitted. To find out more details and see how you can take action to respond please see The Uplands page under Take Action.
Despite the local residents very hard work to try to establish the land to the south of The Uplands as open green space through North Somerset Council and the Ombudsman, but this was not successful. The land remains in the Sites Allocation Plan and fifty houses are intended to be built there. Consultations with local residents have taken place and more are expected. However, a successful application for a woodland preservation order, rather than individual tree reservation orders) was made for the ancient woods at the east end of the land to the south of The Uplands, and a fully documented application for official registration and recognition of the footpaths/ways that have been used for decades has been lodged.

Joint Spatial Plan
Following rejection of the plan by Inspectors in Summer 2019, North Somerset Council formally withdrew from the plan in December and continue to develop the Local Plan.
Works for the National Grid Hinkley Point connection commenced at the start of January 2020 throwing the original development timetable for housing on this land into doubt.
Linden Homes wish to build 195 homes behind Causeway View between the football ground and Watery Lane. The land in question is currently subject to multiple ownership and is low lying which could significantly delay the builders' intentions.
Developers have expressed the intention to submit applications to build 600 homes between Clevedon Road and Bristol Road.
Land to the east of Youngwood Lane at it's junction with The Perrings
