An appeal into whether 59 homes can be built on the edge of Wrington will be heard in late-September, North Somerset Council has announced.

Redcliffe Homes wants to build the houses in Coxs Green, but the idea has been met with anger locally.

More than 150 letters of objection have been submitted, with the impact on roads one of the chief concerns.

Redcliffe decided to lodge an appeal so an independent inspector decides because North Somerset Council failed to make a decision quickly enough.

However, the council’s planning committee will meet this afternoon (Wednesday) to debate what submissions it should make.

Although Redcliffe Homes is arguing to be allowed to build 59 homes, it has also submitted a second planning application for 28 homes on the site, in case it loses the hearing.

That alternative plan has merited a similar amount of opposition.
