Plans to build up to 100 homes on Green Belt land at Manor Road in Saltford have gone on show.
The Green Belt land in Saltford where 100 homes are planned
Crest Nicholson wants to develop land to the north of Saltford Golf Club and west of Hazelbury Grove.
The agricultural land is currently used for grazing horses.
The developers argue that the"severe housing shortage" within Bath & North East Somerset justifies developing the Green Belt site.
The homes would range in size from two to five bedrooms and 35 per cent would be affordable housing.
Scores of people went along to a public consultation event hosted by Crest Nicholson's advisers, the Pegasus Planning Group, at Saltford Golf Club yesterday to find out more. There is another consultation session today from 3pm to 7pm at the club.
People are asked to fill out a feedback form.
Do you think that the community of Saltford will benefit from new homes including affordable homes?
Do you think that the proposed development site is an appropriate location for residential development within Saltford?
If you do not think that the site is in an appropriate location in Saltford, where else in Saltford would you suggest that development should be directed?
The developers say a planning application will be submitted to Bath & North East Somerset Council by the end of this month after responses to the public consultation have been considered.
Pegasus are in the process of settting up a website so that people can see the plans online - it will be http://www.pegasuspg.co.uk/manorroadsaltford
What do you think of the plans? Is building on the Green Belt justified?
