Residential development at Infill villages. ... Affordable housing will be permitted within settlement boundaries or in the form of rural exceptions sites, adjacent to settlements."

CS17(Jan 17) - Rural exceptions schemes   "Housing schemes for 100% affordable housing to meet local needs within small rural communities will be supported where: a) the development meets an identified local need demonstrated by an up-to-date needs survey or other evidence; b) the development is supported or initiated by the parish council ...; (presumably acting on the views of residents?) ... Rural exceptions schemes will be acceptable adjacent to the settlement boundaries of  ... Infill Villages [e.g. Bleadon] and elsewhere adjacent to the main body of the settlement ..."

Other Information

Another Caravan/Mobile Home Park planned for Bleadon? A request to NSC on 15 December 2017 for an opinion on whether an Environmental Impact Assessment is needed (this will increase application cost), can only mean that there is an intention for a future planning application on green agricultural field(s) near Summerways Bridge off Accomodation Road! The agent (Urban Design Practice) is already active in other Bleadon application areas and in comments to the planning inspector has been critical of NSC and our Infill Village status that restricts development. This proposal could bring up to another 50 spaces to our area (see letter and OS Map and NSC response)
