Falfield Village

Page last updated: Saturday, January 13, 2018


Falfield Action Group originally established in 1986 when Falfield was subject to two planing applications by Bovis Homes, one for 250 homes and a second for 1,500 homes on farmland to the north and west of the village. The applications were turned down by the then Northavon District Council but Bovis decided to appeal against their decision with an appeal to take place in 1998. However at the eleventh hour Bovis decided not to proceed with their appeal after the Ministry of Agriculture changed their policy on building on farmland.

After Bovis went away the Action group formed a Community Association which continued until 1992 when it ceased to exist.

Now with the threat of large scale development in the village again the village decided at a meeting on 2nd December 2015 that a new Action Group should be formed to fight any large scale development proposed by Cotswold Homes and to respond to South Gloucestershire Policies, Sites and Places Plan  along with the West of England Joint Spatial Plan* (JSP) which sets out a prospectus for sustainable growth in the area to meet its housing and transport needs for the next 20 years.

* This is made up of four local authorities - South Gloucestershire, Bristol, North Somerset and Bath & North East Somerset. Between them they are proposing to build a total of 85,000 homes between 2017 and 2036.
