North Somerset Council will this year launch a procurement exercise to identify a development partner to deliver approximately 750 homes alongside commercial spaces on four key sites. The partner will share the council’s ambition for striving for passivhaus standards, genuinely affordable homes and exemplary design and placemaking. The portfolio comprises of brownfield land in Clevedon and Weston-super-Mare town centre and a greenfield site in the greater Weston area.
Weston Parklands phase 2
The Parklands phase 2 benefits from an outline planning permission for 275 homes alongside commercial space. Parklands is a popular development area with Keepmoat, St Modwin, Taylor Wimpey and Persimmon also active in the area. New schools, a health centre and road infrastructure is currently in delivery. The land is short drive from J21 of the M5, while connections exist to Worle Station, which is on the main line to Bristol, Exeter and London. The site is within the Weston Enterprise Area which is home to a growing number of high value employers.
Weston Town Centre
The council recently acquired land from Homes England to bring forward for development. Dolphin Square, Walliscote Place and Sunnyside Road provide opportunities for residential led development in close proximity of Weston-super-Mare station, the amenities of the town centre and Weston’s famous coastline. Together these sites can accommodate about 380 homes. SuperWeston is the council’s major regeneration programme and we recently secured £23m of Levelling Up Funds to transform assets along the seafront including the Tropicana (recently home to SEE Monster and previously Banksy’s Dismaland), Birnbeck Pier and Marine Lake. Alongside this there will be investment in the High Street and Grove Park.
