The site, south of Wotton Road, is located on the eastern edge of the village of Charfield and comprises almost 16 acres of previously greenfield land.
Charfield is a medium sized village in South Gloucestershire, located 15 miles from the edge of Bristol. It benefits from a range of local facilities including a primary school, a nursery school, an out-of-school club, a convenience store, a post office, a petrol filling station with a small shop, two hairdressers, three public houses, two places of worship, a community hall, playing fields and a range of local employment opportunities.
Outline planning permission was granted by the Secretary of State in June 2015 following an appeal lodged against the refusal to grant planning permission in April 2014. The approved scheme is for up to 106 residential dwellings and associated public open space.
