Nailsea Town Council will meet tonight (Wednesday) to discuss plans to build thousands of homes in the area.

A joint spatial plan (JSP) for the West of England, which outlines where homes should be built in the region over the next 20 years, has been agreed in draft form by North Somerset Council, ahead of public consultation.

Within the JSP it outlines plans for 2,575 homes to be built to the south west of Nailsea.

The town council will meet at the tithe barn this evening to agree a response to the consultation.

Concerns over a lack of infrastructure in the town have been raised before, but there is talk of a M5 link road from Nailsea being built to offset the development.

A public exhibition of the JSP plans will be held on December 7 at the same venue from 2-6.30pm.

Comments on the JSP can be made at the exhibition or via North Somerset Council’s website until January 10.
