The developer which wants to revamp a derelict psychiatric hospital hopes to make changes to the plans.

Linden Homes has applied to North Somerset Council to change conditions in the planning permission granted for Barrow Gurney hospital to be redeveloped for housing.

Outline permission for 66 homes was granted to Crest Nicholson and Del Piero, the site’s previous owners.

But the site was sold to Linden Homes, and it hopes to alter parts of the plan.

The firm has applied to change the layout of the development, in addition to roads and paths.

Linden Homes planning statement said: “These amendments are not considered to be contentious and care has been taken to ensure the design principles established with the approved scheme are maintained and, where possible, improved.

“Linden Homes has a proven record of developing high-quality schemes in sometimes difficult and challenging conditions.”
