Plans to build a road through a historic orchard linking to a new housing development have been delayed again.
North Somerset Council claims it has done ‘a vast amount to bring forward land for housing’, despite fewer new homes being built in the area than other parts of the country,
More than 100 properties in North Somerset are owned by companies registered in offshore tax havens, which campaigners warn could be a means of laundering cash from criminal enterprises.
Proposals to build more than 1,800 homes in Portishead are ‘entirely speculative’, according to North Somerset Council – which insists no development will go ahead without ‘detailed’ scrutiny.
Several fields across Portishead could be transformed into hundreds of homes, if developers get their way.
‘Important issues’ in Congresbury including housing development and traffic are set to be tackled after a masterplan for the village’s future edged closer to being completed.
Thousands of new homes could be built on derelict land in North Somerset, but tens of thousands of homes are earmarked for green spaces.
