Annual General Meeting

7:30pm, Monday 4th April 2022

Nailsea United Reformed Church Hall, Stockway North, Nailsea, BS48 1AQ

Nailsea Action Group’s (N.A.G.) will be holding it’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) at 7.30 p.m. on Monday 4th April 2022 in the Nailsea United Reformed Church Hall, Stockway North, Nailsea. BS48 1AQ. Clevedon Road car park is very near by. Blue badge parking is behind the church

NAG’s aim is to promote and protect Nailsea’s rural setting and open green spaces for the benefit of the whole community.

That means ensuring that, where building developments do have to take place,

  • they are not built where climate change will impact on their viability (eg from flooding),
  • there is sufficient appropriate and sustainable infrastructure to support them such as roads, transport, public amenities, health care, schools and employment opportunities,
  • the working, living and ecological environment is not only protected but enhanced,
  • there is easy access to meaningful open green space for the benefit of physical and mental well-being,
  • the creation of new estates does not significantly harm the quality of life and well-being of existing residents,
  • there will be real opportunities for purchasers to obtain genuinely affordable homes.

Where these points are met, N.A.G will support development. Where they are not, N.A.G will not.

The current situation in Nailsea is that:-

  • 2022 will see significant greenfield housing development on three areas of open space in Nailsea eventually amounting to 671 dwellings.
  • North Somerset Council has recently announced its intention for a further 600 -1000 houses to be built adjacent to these.
  • Various companies have options for development for much of the unbuilt environment and open space across and around the town.
  • As a result there is a real possibility that, within a few years, Nailsea will lose its reputation as being a pleasant place in which to live.

If these issues interest you, do join us. The main item on the agenda will be the consultation on the North Somerset Local Plan to which you can contribute until 29th April. Local councillors will be at the meeting.
