We have plans for a new road to bypass the village of Banwell.
The bypass will be funded by Homes England’s Housing Infrastructure Fund.
It will help to:
- reduce traffic congestion through Banwell
- make roads safer for active travel
- reduce noise
- improve air quality
The bypass will also open up further areas of land for travel and housing. This will provide access to a greater range of jobs for local communities. We will also have space to build new and affordable homes for growing families (subject to the Local Plan).
We have appointed Alun Griffiths (Contractors) Ltd to design the scheme.
