Planning application

The planning application for the Banwell bypass was submitted to the Local Planning Authority (LPA) in July 2022. It was then determined at the Planning & Regulatory Committee in March 2023, where the scheme was granted permission to proceed.

The planning application includes:

  • the Banwell bypass itself
  • placemaking measures in Banwell village
  • measures to mitigate identified impacts of the scheme in the local area

Mitigation measures are part of the planning consent and will be delivered ahead of the bypass opening.

You can find more information about the planning application on our dedicated page.
