Convent flats plan approved
WORK to convert a former Clevedon convent into homes could begin later this year.
Proposals for the Convent of Mercy site in Marine Hill, put forward by developers ATA Estates, have been approved by North Somerset Council.
The company bought the site in 2001 but did not announce until September its plans to transform the building into eight flats and one house, along with proposals to build five family homes on nearby land.
Consultation events were held for neighbours in the area, the plans were then submitted in November and approved this month.
Andy Fudge of ATA Estates said the company was delighted to have received planning permission for the project.

He added: “After consulting closely with council officers and the local community, we hope we have achieved consent for something we can all be proud of and aim to move on to the next stage of this exciting project. Our plan is that work will commence on site later this year, with a view to being able to move in our first new residents by the middle of 2013.”
