People are being urged to pay more interest to plans which could see ‘village spaces gone forever’.

North Somerset Villages Alliance (NSVA) has called for people to pay attention to plans backed by North Somerset Council for more then 2,500 homes at Mendip Springs, between Congresbury and Churchill.

The group is mulling hosting workshops to inform villagers about housing and infrastructure developments on their doorstep – as it believes people may not be aware of the scale of plans for North Somerset.

Chairman Mary Short said: “We think the majority might be surprised by what the council has in store for us.

“The council issues plans with titles designed to deter people from taking part in local democracy.

“But these plans are crucial to the way in which North Somerset will develop over the next few decades.

“Once village spaces are lost to buildings they are gone forever.”
