Land off Minsmere Road

Off Minsmere Road - Keynsham - Bristol

We are preparing a planning application for a development of up to 80 new homes on land off Minsmere Road in Keynsham.

  • Overview


    We are currently drawing up proposals for a new development of up to 80 homes on land off Minsmere Road on the south-eastern outskirts of Keynsham.

    Under our plans, a mix of housetypes is proposed to suit buyers in a wide range of circumstances, with 30% 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.

    As well as providing an attractive and sustainable development of high-quality new homes, we believe the scheme will make a contribution towards meeting the wider housing supply requirements of Keynsham.

    In order for local residents to find out more about our emerging proposals and provide us with their feedback we held a public exhibition, which took place as follows at Keynsham Masonic Hall on Monday 15th May 2017.

    By coming along to our consultation, were able to view our emerging proposals, speak to experts from our project team, ask questions and provide us with thier feedback on the scheme.

    If you were unable to attend the consultation, further information about our proposals is available here.

    The comments we receive from local residents will help us to develop and refine our emerging plans before we finalise and submit a planning application to Bath and North East Somerset Council in due course.

    If you would like to attend an accompanied tour around Taylor Wimpey’s nearby Somerdale development in Keynsham, please send us your full name, contact details and preferred availability to keynsham.minsmereroad@webbpr.net by Friday 26th May.

  • About the site

    About the site

    The proposed development site is located to the east of Minsmere Road on the south-eastern outskirts of Keynsham, and covers an area of 7.83 acres (3.17 hectares).


    The land was removed from the Green Belt by the council on the adoption of the B&NES Core Strategy in 2014 in order to provide land for future housing need. Core Strategy Policy KE3b specifically safeguards this land for future residential development.


    The local nature reserve that borders the site to the east will remain unaffected by the proposals.

  • 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 80 high-quality new homes

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

    • A provision of affordable housing (30%) for local people in housing need

    • The provision of an attenuation pond to assist with site drainage

    • Vehicular access to be taken from a new access point constructed towards the Western Boundaryof the site

  • Community

    Community benefits

    We believe our proposals will carry wider benefits to the community of Keynsham 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.
