Residents Protecting Peasedown - Church Road
"We, the undersigned have grave concerns about the sustainability and impact of the proposed housing development adjacent to Church Road, Peasedown St John. We call on our elected representatives to ensure our views are fully heard and properly considered - and we request that any planning application is put before Bath and North East Somerset Council's Development Control Committee."
A developer has applied to build 55 homes on a greenfield site in a semi-rural area outside Peasedown St John's housing development boundary (HDB) at Church Road. Residents Protecting Peasedown is a group formed to fight these large developments in a village that's already shouldered thousands of new homes for the area over the last 20 years with no comensurate improvements in infrastructure. Development outside of the HDB would not normally be allowed under local planning law, but BANES Council's development plans are out of date, making it easier for developers to push through unsuitable development using national policy until new local planning laws are agreed (c.September 2014). To ensure these plans are not approved we are requesting that this planning application is put before BANES Development Control Committee. Please sign our petition to pledge your support for this aim.
