PLANS to build 90 homes on land to the north of Yate Town Football Club have been submitted to  South Gloucestershire Council.

The outline scheme is for a mix of homes ranging from two to five-bedroomed properties on the site in Engine Common.

If approved, they would be on a plot running from behind the Codrington Arms pub in North Road down to the boundary of the football club.

The application has been submitted on behalf of Sydney Freed (Holdings) and Whitbread Plc and includes an element of self-build houses, space for allotments, a wildlife walk and mini football pitches.

Access is proposed off North Road, to the south of the pub.

The applicants said a proportion of the site formed part of a much wider area put forward five years ago for more than 200 homes, light industry and new clubhouse and car park for the football club but permission was refjected by a planning inspector.

They said: “While the appeal was refused, the inspector’s report and reasons for refusal did not preclude development on the site.”
