​North Somerset Council has taken the next step in delivering homes in Nailsea.

Stonewood Partnerships has been selected as the preferred development partner for the delivery of new homes to the south of The Uplands, on council-owned land, by the council’s executive.

During the selection process, the amount of deliverable affordable homes increased from 30 per cent to 40 per cent.

Commenting on the selection of Stonewood, Cllr Mark Canniford, executive member for placemaking and economy said: “We’re delighted to be working with Stonewood Partnerships.

Their bid demonstrated a strong commitment to quality and they are embracing the sustainability and new technologies that are to be embedded in the scheme. We look forward to seeing the homes delivered on site.”

James Petherick, land and planning director at Stonewood Partnerships said: “We are very pleased to have been awarded this contract and very much look forward to working with North Somerset Council to bring this exciting development forward. Building truly sustainable, distinctively designed and high-quality homes is central to our business and Uplands will be a flagship scheme for us.”

Planning for the scheme was approved in October 2021 for 52 new homes designed by 2019 Mikhail Riches Architects.

Work is expected to start by the end of 2022, with completion set for 2024.
