Land off Rodney Road

Off Rodney Road - Backwell - North Somerset

We are preparing a planning application for a development of up to 65 new homes on land off Rodney Road in Backwell, North Somerset.

  • Overview

    Land off Rodney Road

    We are currently drawing up proposals for a new development of 65 homes on land off Rodney Road in Backwell.

    Under our plans, a mix of housetypes is proposed to suit buyers in a wide range of circumstances, with up to 35% of the new properties to be provided as affordable homes, to be administered by a council-approved housing association for local people in housing need.

  • About the site

    About the site

    The proposed site lies to the north-west of Backwell Recreation Ground and the south of West Leigh Infants School, on the outskirts of the village of Backwell, North Somerset.

    The site covers approximately 5.9 acres (2.38 hectares) and is currently in agricultural/livestock use.

  • What's proposed

    What's proposed

    Our development is designed to work within the constraints and opportunities of the site and is a scheme that respects the area’s surroundings.


    Our proposals include the following key elements:


    • Up to 65 high-quality new homes

    • A mix of property types and sizes to suit people in a range of circumstances

    • Two to four-bedroom houses

    • A provision of affordable housing (35%) for local people in housing need

    • Public open space

  • Community

    Community benefits

    We believe our proposals will carry wider benefits to the community of Backwell beyond the provision of new homes.

    These benefits include a number of financial contributions that will be made towards the local community as part of our proposed development, in agreement with the relevant local authorities.

    These contributions will be in the form of a Section 106 Agreement, and the details will be released once finalised with the council.
