Yatton Parish Council has supported plans for nine homes to be built on the site of a former pub.

The Prince of Orange’s future has been uncertain since it closed last year and was put up for sale.

Planning permission is sought by iTech Homes for six houses in the garden and car park. It wants to transform the main pub into three homes.

Yatton Parish Council supports the plan but has raised concern over safety. The pub car park was used at night by neighbours but they have now resorted to parking, legally, in High Street causing some congestion.

Parish council clerk Aleana Baird said: “The parish council wishes to recommend a crossing with zigzag lines to assist pedestrians, especially with pushchairs and disabled buggies, to be able to cross over as the pavement ends at the Butchers Arms.

“The accompanying zigzag lines would also preclude parking in High Street opposite the site, making it easier and safer for residents to emerge.”
