East Keynsham


Update on Planning application

Update on Planning application

Further to extensive discussions with BANES Officers, and after considering the consultation responses received by local residents to the pre-application event, Mactaggart & Mickel Homes submitted a outline planning application for the first phase of its land at Keynsham in February 2016.

The site covers an area of 12.6 hectare site on the East of Keynsham, south of the A4 Bath road, adjacent to the Chandag estate. It lies 5 minutes drive from Keynsham town centre and is within a short walking distance of existing local amenities including primary and secondary schools, shops and sports clubs.

The new masterplanned community will include residential development, a primary school, large areas of public open space and a community focus. This land was identified for mixed use development within the adopted Bath and North East Somerset Council Core Strategy (2014) further to several consultation stages and an Examination in Public.

The scheme will assist in the delivery of much needed housing in the local area. The first phase of a wider masterplan will include a residential development comprising up to 250 new dwellings (1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 bed) incorporating a level of affordable housing.  The public open space will feature community orchards, allotments, play areas, a new wetland park and improved access to the Manor Road Community Woodland.
