Consultation Begins On Proposed Development Of Open Spaces

>North Somerset Council have issued a formal consultation today, Tuesday 13 April 2021, to change the use of two pieces of land from open spaces into sites for a school and housing.

The Council plan to change the use of the land it owns at Brookfield Walk, Clevedon and to the south of The Uplands, Nailsea. The land at Brookfield Walk will allow for a development of a school, and the open space south to The Uplands will be for housing. Notices will be published in the North Somerset Times on Wednesday 14 and 21 April to notify residents and other interested parties of the council’s intention.

See the notice here: The Uplands Section 122 Notice.

The council is authorised under the Local Government Act 1972 to consider a change of use (appropriation) of land owned by the authority. The appropriation process is separate from planning policy and application consultations, and relates to the council’s legal duties as the landowner of these pieces of land.

Public responses to the proposals can be emailed to or and must be received by noon on Wednesday 5 May. The comments will then be used to inform a decision on whether to proceed with the appropriation which is expected to be made in late May or June
