Information on all of this on our Elections 2015 dedicated page here.
Yatton Parish Council has applied to designate both Yatton and Claverham as neighbourhood areas for neighbourhood plans. A neighbourhood plan enables the local community to have a say in where development is located. Details here.
Persimmon Homes are developing plans to build up to 83 new homes on land at Moor Road, Yatton. They are holding a public consultation event on Monday 30 March from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Hangstones pavilion, Stowey Road, Yatton BS49 4HS
North Somerset Council has received an application to register land known as 'The Field' plus 'The Copse', Claverham, as a village green, on the basis that a significant number of inhabitants in the neighbourhood have used the land for general recreational activities as of right for more than 20 years. North Somerset Council will now consider whether the land qualifies for registration as a village green. Details of the application can be seen here, together with the process for making representations to North Somerset Council.
Hangstones pavilion in Stowey Road has a large hall and a smaller office/meeting room, both available for hire at very reasonable rates for meetings and social events, more details here.
