The deadline for this application was extended to 25 July 2017, you can submit an online comment to NSC via the BOB link here.


Following their meeting on Monday 10 July 17 Bleadon Parish Council submitted a comment to NSC as follows:

  • "Bleadon Parish Council objects to the planning application based on the same grounds as W-S-M Town Council."

For reference Weston Town Council submitted as follows:

  • "Raised concerns due to overdevelopment and highway access to main busy road.  Not in favour unless these issues can be resolved."

So little comment from our public representatives for such a major planning development. We know several residents will be disappointed in this response as they were hoping BPC would respond to these large developments and address the potential traffic and pollution issues that they will create for Bleadon.


North Somerset make the decision on this development application. If you want your individual voice heard you need to comment directly to NSC.
