Good development is development in the right place  
We are a large team of residents dedicated to ensuring that Churchill retains its distinct rural village character.

Good development is development in the right place.

During the past 2 years, Churchill has accepted or is accepting over 300 new homes, so no one can call us NIMBY!  Residents have witnessed the current devastation of our villages so close to the Mendip Hills AONB.  Hedgerows have been ripped out with impunity.   Where is the promised infrastructure to create 'sustainable thriving communities'?
We are all seeing the damage that this is doing to the culture of rural village life. The figures of plannign applications for our village that are in the pipeline (listed below) make staggering reading.

If the 300 already built are added to the total it represents 93% increase in the size of our village.  According to N Somerset policies for Service Villages (ours is one of the smallest) only 'small scale development' is allowed.  

We keep in touch with residents.  They are telling us very clearly that enough is enough.

New dormitory town HERE  is not on the new
North Somerset Draft Local Plan BUT  speculative developers are still trying.
It doesn't make any sense to build so far from a train station and
16 miles from employment in Bristol.
