Proposed Development

Land at Grove Farm and Burnt House Farm

Backwell, BS48

Learn more about our proposals for new homes and land for a primary school at Grove Farm and Burnt House Farm, Backwell.

We have submitted an outline planning application (application ref. 23/P/2618/OU2) for up to 515 new homes and associated development at Grove Farm/Burnt House Farm, Backwell.

Our proposals will include a mix of one, two, three, four and five bedroom properties. To support the council’s ambition for more affordable housing, circa 35% are affordable homes, to address the type and size of dwellings needed within the North Somerset area. This development will provide an excellent choice for all buyers, from working professionals and young couples taking their first step on the housing ladder, to growing families or downsizers.

Our plans for the site will deliver a high-quality scheme that, if approved, will provide much-needed new homes to meet the unmet housing need of North Somerset.
