A proposal is in for another 30 houses off Eastington’s Bath Road.
The formula is as before, 2 and 3 storey buildings, same dense packing, 4 bed and 5 bed houses for commuters from Bristol which are a long walk from the OHMG, Allotments, Playgroup etc.
Planning Minister Nick Boles has said: “We have recently published planning guidance to ensure that emerging plans [Local & Neighbourhood] are taken into account in respect of inappropriate speculative development”. So this time planning law is more likely to stop the development.
The proposed new development lies outside the village settlement boundary and does not feature in the emerging local plan.
Bath Rd. is premature with reference to the emerging Local Plan as it is clear that the adverse impacts of granting permission would significantly and demonstrably outweigh any benefits of this development.
