Plans to redevelop a 19th century home have been given the provisional green light by North Somerset Council planners.

Slade House, in Portishead, was marketed for £1.5million in 2017 and a planning application was later submitted to transform the site.

Crown Developments wants to maintain the home in Slade Road, but build four other houses on the plot. Three would have four bedrooms and one would have three.

The developer also wants to convert an outbuilding into a two-bedroom home.

The application received a lot of negative comments from both councillors and the public when Portishead Town Council met in November.

Cllr Jean Lord raised road safety concerns, Cllr David Pasley feared development would ‘destroy the place’ and resident Geoff Hardman feared major disruption for neighbours living on Slade Road.

North Somerset Council’s planning committee will vote on the plans tomorrow afternoon (Wednesday) at Weston Town Hall.
