Backland Development

New planning policy adopted in North Somerset adopted in 2016 makes development of gardens in towns for additional houses extremely difficult. The policy says that the new house must be of an equivalent size to its near neighbours on the same street and the resulting plot sizes of the existing and additional must be no smaller than  the neighbours. So unless you start out with a garden twice the size of your neighbours you are unlikely to get permission.

We currently have an appeal pending for a new house which actually complies with the policy.
