- The M32 is within 10 min drive and there’s an 8 min walk to the nearest station with 9 min by train to Bristol Temple Meads

Pre-Application Update: 
This week (wb 22/8/16) we submitted the pre-planning enquiry to the council, and we are expecting to hear back in ~8 weeks.   The aim of the pre-app is to enter conversations with the council re. planning permission on the site and establish the basis for gaining planning permission for 4 additional houses on the site.   We are working with Richard Pedlar Architects (, who is very experienced in working with listed buildings. With their input, we are proposing a farm-yard style development with the 4 houses surrounding a central court yard, which is in keeping with the existing cottages and sensitive to the historical nature of the site.   You can find two CAD drawings of the proposed development along with the statement supporting the pre-application enquiry available for download.   We will keep you updated as we progress with the project and, as always, do let us know if you have any questions.

A response from the Council regarding the pre-planning enquiry is available for download.

Update: 2nd November 2016 - Sports and Leisure Facilities

Work has commenced on the sports and leisure facilities this week, and is expected completed in January 2018. When complete, there will be great sports facilities within short walking distance of the new properties along with a brand new, well-lit road leading up to our properties. Further, there will be three new tennis courts just on the other side of the road from the properties.
