Parish council calls for housing numbers to be reduced at old factory site
PUBLISHED: 08:05 11 November 2017
Plans to demolish a former factory and build homes has been backed by parish councillors – but only if the ‘drab’ design is changed.
The old Titan Ladders site in Yatton has been vacant since the company relocated to Clevedon last year.
A planning application to build 30 houses and nine flats has been submitted.
Yatton Parish Council voted in favour of supporting the plan for Mendip Road as it is on a brownfield site and included in the draft neighbourhood plan.
But it believes 39 homes is too many.
In its report to North Somerset Council, it said: “The density of housing and the height of some dwellings was considered to be too high and the council would prefer to see a smaller number of dwellings which are of a more imaginative design.
“The provision of flats is welcome though concern was raised about the number of parking spaces allocated and the very bland rather drab design of the block.”
