NSC Draft Local Plan now available

The North Somerset Council draft Local Plan is due to be presented to the NSC Executive on 2nd February. The Plan and associated appendices are now available for view at:


Public consultation of the Plan is due to commence in March this year.

Key points from an initial skim show that there will be a new allocation of 1,782 homes in Nailsea (651 with existing planning approval) and a further 600 homes at Backwell. There is mention of a possible new link road from Nailsea to the A370 on the east side of Backwell amongst other mitigations – but no improvements that will directly impact Tickenham.


We are currently pulling our response together in preparation for the public consultation and will share this with you all in good time ahead of the consultation so we can benefit from your input.


One key area we are looking at is road safety through Tickenham. We have records of a couple of incidents, but if you have any traffic incidents or issues to share with us we would be very grateful. Just send them in to this email address.
