Plans to redevelop an disused industrial site have been delayed.

Yatton Developments Ltd wants to turn the village’s former Titan Ladders base into a housing estate.

North Somerset Council’s planning team believe it should go ahead. But councillors will have the final say and were due to vote on the scheme’s merits last week.

However, at the 11th hour the item was deferred to allow members to visit the area and see the uneven ground surrounding the premises.

Instead, a decision will be taken at the council meeting in mid-December.

Major concerns have been raised by villagers and Yatton Parish Council ahead of North Somerset’s decision.

One of the significant fears is how the estate will be managed with the proposed roads layout and size not meeting North Somerset Council’s specifications, meaning a third-party management company would be responsible for maintaing them and arranging waste collections.
