Lord Nelson Planning Application - 17/P/5406/FUL


Please see information below, this is an email from North Somerset Council.

'The trench evaluation has indeed been approved by myself, but I do not have the capacity to be on site monitoring all archaeological evaluations across the district for their entire duration. I did approve the written scheme of investigation, which sets out the location of the trenches, method statement and reporting details etc., and the archaeologists on site will be working to this.

This trenching is the first stage of archaeological investigations on this site, to determine the presence (or indeed absence) of the remains of the former inn on the site and the subsequent impact of any development upon these remains.

Depending what is found, I may need to visit the site tomorrow to monitor progress. I have spoken briefly with the site team this morning and they will be backfilling each of the trenches once any features are recorded. They will not be reinstating the tarmac as this is not within their remit, only to make the area safe.

The archaeologists on site are not required to notify the Parish Council of commencement of works, only myself and then I notify the case officer. However, details of the evaluation should be on the planning website against the application.'


It has been confirmed by the case officer that this application will not go to the planning committee until May. Looking likely to be the 9th May or 13th June.
Please find Cleeve Parish Council's response on the Lord Nelson menu tab.
District Councillor Deborah Yamanaka has already taken the appropriate action to call this application in to the planning committee.
