UPDATE: See Bleadon Developments Nov 2020 



The Future of the Region: the Spatial Development Strategy

02 Nov 2014 Dec 20"The plan will make sure the development of homes, spaces for employment and transport links happens in the right places ..."


NB: This consultation was not noted for councillor discussion on Bleadon Parish Council's 16 Nov 20 Agenda. The next Full BPC meeting is currently scheduled for 14 Dec 20, the day this consultation closes. The BPC Planning Committee has not met since Feb 2019, and was disbanded at the beginning of this year?


"The survey runs from 2 November to 14 December 2020. An engagement report and responses will be published online in early 2021."

  • "... The scale of the challenge The West of England's population is growing. People are attracted to move to the region and our resident population is increasing. House prices and rents are rising and, as people live longer, the amount and types of housing that are needed is changing. Over the next 20 years the area covered by the Spatial Development Strategy could need around 88,500 or as many as 125,000 homes (depending on the Government's method of calculating housing need, linked to the national housing target)."

"The West of England Combined Authority (WECA) and its constituent authorities are working together, along with North Somerset Council, to address the region’s strategic housing, planning and infrastructure needs.

Spatial Development Strategy (SDS)


We need a large-scale plan to make sure future development in the region provides the right kind of jobs, homes and transport links in the right places. The Spatial Development Strategy will set out the vision for how people will live, work and play in the West of England over the next 20 years and will help us deliver our commitment to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030. It will influence where the homes and jobs in each local area will go and will be important in shaping future decisions on development.


The strategy will cover the area of the West of England Combined Authority (WECA) area, which includes Bath & North East Somerset, Bristol and South Gloucestershire Councils."
