Give your views on long-awaited bypass

2:39pm - 13 July 2021

Banwell’s long-awaited bypass is edging closer and now you can have your say on the scheme.

The first public consultation on Banwell bypass launched last week.

We want your feedback on the favoured route and what you think of additional proposals to reduce impacts of the road for Banwell and surrounding area.

Your feedback, along with findings from surveys and technical investigations into the local environment, will help inform the bypass design and any smaller scale work in the local road network.

This won’t be the only opportunity to have your say – it’s the first step.

Additional public consultation about the design will take place early next year before submission of a planning application.

The bypass scheme is being funded through Homes England’s Housing Infrastructure Fund to reduce congestion through Banwell.

This will also improve air quality and unlock active travel opportunities locally, including to and from Weston-super-Mare. 

Find out more about the scheme, planned drop-in engagement sessions and how to access the consultation on our website.

You have until Monday 16 August to have your say.
