Map of Proposed Developments in BleadonBAG Leaflet with Development Proposal Image



The above maps indicate actual and proposed development in and around Bleadon (click images to enlarge, BAG PDF.).


If you are concerned about any application we encourage you to familiarise yourself with the information, on the left and below, so that you are informed about the process. It may also help you decide how best to comment to NSC, the Planning Authority that makes decisions based on their Local Plan Core Strategy and Development Management policies.





Although there is NO APPLICATION ON THIS SITE AT PRESENT the Action Group is currently preparing to object to a proposal for 200+ houses that was recently suggested by Sutherland PLS, the developer's agent (original PDF of original school site now changed to health centre). Background Information on the site:

  • Bleadon Village New #89 August 2011 Sanders' Survey of Development in the Village.  80% of residents say 'NO'. "A total of 283 consultation forms were filled in".
  • Sanders' Hearing and Supplementary Hearing statements question the designation of the fields adjacent to Bridge Road and potential use as a school. Sanders made a submission re: SAP "in relation to land at Bleadon due to their proposed designation under the Site Allocations Plan as proposed “Strategic Open Space” and the failure of the LPA to consider a proposed mixed residential and community use at the Site"
  • Developer's Open Day 13 Sept 17 at the Village Hall.

  • Comment directly to North Somerset on a submitted application
  • Write to Avon Wildlife Trust, or other organisations, at any time so that they can collate supporting information on the Bleadon Environment throughout the year(s)

WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY of the Bleadon Parish Action Group?


The Bleadon Action Group was formed in 2017 and meets to discuss views and concerns around applications and issues affecting them. The current School/250 houses part of the group was formed following an Open Meeting on 13 September 2017 in the Jubillee Hall by the landowners' property development agent. The open day informed the public of the potential application for a school and 250 houses (now amended see link) on land adjacent to Bleadon and Bridge Road, known locally as 'Sanders Fields'.


A household 'letter drop' and public meeting was arranged by concerned residents and held on Tuesday 19th September 2017 at the Coronation Hall. The packed meeting, including our BPC and NSC Ward Councillors, seemed to unanimously agree to object to any such application that may be forthcoming. Consequently, 14 residents volunteered to participate in an 'Action Group' to further research and discuss this and other related housing development issues within our area. The aim of the group is to raise knowledge and awareness within our community, with assistance from five other resident 'activists', to prepare the public to comment to the Planning Authorities accordingly when required.


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.
