 Welcome to Congresbury Parish Council 

PINEAPPLE FARM - PROPOSED HOUSING DEVELOPMENT

M7 Planning Limited and Stonewater Housing Association have teamed up to progress a planning application for land at Pineapple Farm for up to 90 dwellings (including 30% affordable housing), public open space and the retention of an ecological buffer along the boundary of the site.

The land is situated behind Park Road and the proposal is to access the site from Mulberry Road. The developer has asked that the Parish Council directs residents to their website which is available here where residents can view the plans and provide feedback. The Parish Council was made aware of the proposal at the public participation section of the Full Council meeting on October 12th 2020. The Parish Council will consider the application and respond to North Somerset Council in the usual manner when the application has been submitted. However, the Parish Council would urge that residents take this opportunity to provide feedback at this early consultation stage.

Paper copies of the plans and feedback forms are available from the Community Library and the Parish Office.
