The green light has been given for construction work to begin on another 107 homes in Yatton – as plans for a care village at North End are also revealed.

Bloor Homes’ housing estate at Arnolds Way is already underway with builders having been on site since 2016.

But North Somerset Council has this week rubber-stamped plans for a second phase to stretch into the fields behind.

The development, which received outline planning permission in 2017, also includes room for a school and a care village.

The council last autumn committed millions of pounds of funding for a new primary school at North End but until now the make-up of the care facility has remained a mystery.

Housing & Care 21’s scheme involves 60 apartments for older people and those with ‘care needs’.

It says the centre would promote independence and would ‘offer a ‘home for life’ as far as practically possible’. The building would be mainly three storeys high, but two in places, if the council approves the plan.

Housing & Care 21’s application says: “(This) will create an attractive and accessible development of the highest quality, that will meet the aspirations set out in the outline planning permission and sit comfortably with the general housing being proposed adjacent (by Bloor).”

The care village would add to a growing number of homes being built in Yatton, especially at the northern end of the village.

Bloor has permission for 257 houses across its two phases, Housing & Care 21 wants to build 60 care apartments and Hallam Land Management has permission for 170 homes off the eastern side of the Arnolds Way roundabout.

Persimmon Homes is seeking permission for 69 homes off Moor Road and plans for about 100 homes at Rectory Farm are also in the pipeline.

Industrial sites are also being targeted with the Oxford Instruments factory likely to be demolished to make way for houses in the future and 39 properties earmarked for the old Titan ladders facility in Mendip Road.

And question marks hang over Yatton Rugby Club’s future with rumours over whether it will be redeveloped one day.
