New homes and 12 commercial units will be built on the redundant Mendip Mills site on Mill Lane, in Congresbury.

CJH Land brokered the deal in which Charles Church Homes have bought the site from The Elliott Medway Group.

Alongside the commercial units 29 new homes will also be built.

The ambitious plan provides for a mixed use development of 2,3 and 4 bedroom homes alongside a dozen small commercial units on the site between Mill Lane and the River Yeo.

CJH Land director Matthew Hiles said the four acre development was the most significant  in the village for years.

Matthew comments: “Although the site has always been properly maintained it has been surplus to requirements since 2009 and it’s right that it is now going to be developed for housing.

“Another heavy industrial or factory type use would have been totally inappropriate in this location.

“I have no doubt that houses in a semi-rural setting within comfortable commuting distance of Weston-super-Mare and Bristol will prove extremely popular.”
