Developer's master-plan for development land in East Keynsham

Following a hearing by an independent planning inspector and a decision by B&NES Council, land at East Keynsham has been removed from Green Belt to allow it to be developed to meet future housing needs. Although this land is in Keynsham and NOT in Saltford Parish, residents may still like to view the master plan of the developer Mactaggart and Mickel showing how the overall site could be developed. This master plan and further details can be found on the developer's project web-site.
