This is an inappropriate site for 15 houses - totally opposed to development on this scale at this site which is immediately adjacent to Nowhere wood, a long established and valued amenity for local community supporting important wildlife, Owls, Bats, Badgers.  The local area has a characteristic street scene of  low density housing bordered by the small woodland.

The area to the East of Nailsea has grown rapidly since the seventies and this plot, which was quite literally in the middle of No-where  (hence the name of the wood) is now right in the middle of the town. With the recent in-fill and garden developments elsewhere on Station Road this amenity area has become all the more important in the immediate locale.

At a stretch possible room for an eco houses in keeping with area -  low environmental impact, natural materials, low light pollution etc,   Needs very care traffic management if access is to be to Station Road - previous planning applications have recognised this with proposed mini-roundabout at frontage of 60 Station Road and Horwood Road - I'm totally opposed to this and other measures that would significantly change street scene.
