WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY of the Bleadon Acting Together Group?


The Bleadon Action Group (BAG) was formed in 2017 and met to discuss views and concerns around applications and issues affecting them. A household 'letter drop' was undertaken and a public meeting was held on Tuesday 19th September 2017 at the Coronation Hall. Consequently residents volunteered to participate as a group to further research and discuss housing development issues within our area. The aim of the group is to raise knowledge and awareness within our community, with assistance from residents, and to prepare the public to comment to the Planning Authorities accordingly when required.


On 22 May 2018 this group was renamed 'Bleadon Acting Together (BAT)'.


On this page there are various links to policy documents and other information that has relevance to potential applications within Bleadon, including the National Government Policies and Strategies that seem to be driving these attacks on our rural identity. Also, housing growth in the wider North Somerset area.
