Backwell is a suburban village south west of Bristol, on the A370 to Weston-super-Mare. It includes the hamlets of Backwell Common, Backwell Green and Farleigh. Nearby are Nailsea, Flax Bourton, Yatton, Brockley and Barrow Gurney. Backwell Lake is next to the road between Nailsea and Backwell and is just north of the railway station. The village has a long history, appearing in the Domesday Book in 1086 with the name 'Bacoile' meaning 'The well back on the hill'. The well is still in existence. Many residents of Backwell commute daily to Bristol by car via the A370, bus or train - the railway station has a direct service to London. Backwell is close to the M5 motorway and Bristol International Airport at Lulsgate is 3 miles (4.8 km) away by road. The airport serves both domestic and international routes, and is one of EasyJet's hub airports. Backwell has excellent junior and secondary schools; the largest junior school is Backwell Church of England Junior School, which is highly praised by Ofsted and performs consistently well in the league tables, and secondary school Backwell School, consistently features high in the league tables for GCSE results, and is recognised as one of the best state schools in North Somerset.

PROFESSIONAL PLANNING APPRAISAL
Planning Experts Stokes Morgan comment;
The site has the capacity to accommodate either a larger replacement dwelling (two-storey), or perhaps a modest pair of semi-detached properties (again, two-storey). Either scheme would be acceptable in principle in view of the site’s location within the defined settlement boundary of Backwell, which is a Service Village where both the adopted Core Strategy and Backwell Neighbourhood Plan support new housing development.
Any scheme proposing a redevelopment to provide a semi-detached pair will need to ensure an appropriate amount of space is retained either side of the pair (i.e. the houses do not sit too close to the side boundaries) in order to avoid overdevelopment of the plot, and the established front building line should be respected. Sufficient on-site car parking will be required in accordance with adopted policy requirements as well as the ability for cars to turn on-site and egress the accesses in a forward gear, in view of the site’s location on a busy road; limited visibility by virtue of topography and existing planting; and the proximity to Backwell School on Meadow Close.
