Lord Nelson Development Update (10/05/2017) - The Parish Council would like to update residents with the current position regarding the proposed development of the Lord Nelson.  The Parish Council has been informed that the consultation sheet for residents will be sent out to each household in May for you to respond directly to the owner of the site.  The Parish Council encourages every resident to respond and to keep a copy of your response.  The Parish Council continues to research and gather information so that once a Planning Application is submitted it will be in a good position to submit a full response.  It is very important that all residents respond directly to North Somerset Council once a planning application is received.  The Parish Council will notify residents of this via this website and a flyer to each household.

Lord Nelson - We were delighted that so many residents attended to hear the presentation from Tout Ltd (Budgens) of the proposed development predicted on the Lord Nelson site.  We are at the early stages of consultation on this site.  Budgens have committed to a public consultation.  We hope to influence Budgens that a 24/7 petrol station in the heart of the village is not acceptable.  Another main concern is that Budgens will impact on every business in Cleeve and the immediate surrounding area from coffee shops, hairdressers, beauty spa, paper shop, local food shopts/takeaways and the petrol station "Halfway Garage" in Congresbury.  The Parish Council will be seeking to change Budgens views and minimise the impacts of the development whatever the outcome.  The Parish Councillors welcome resident's views with an indication of positives and negatives for them personnaly and any other aspects they can think of.  Please email cleeveparishcouncil@hotmail.co.uk or speak to a Councillor.
