Archant

Objectors to plans to build 59 homes on the outskirts of Wrington are being urged to make their voice heard.

Redcliffe Homes’ bid to build at Coxs Green has been rebuffed by North Somerset Council, but the firm has appealed the ruling.

An inquiry, chaired by an independent inspector, will decide the scheme’s fate.

The six-day hearing will start on Tuesday at Weston Town Hall, but to ensure villagers can contribute, an evening session will be held at Wrington’s memorial hall on Thursday at 5.30pm.

A Wrington Parish Council spokesman said: “If you have any concerns, whether on flood risk, traffic, pedestrian access, loss of agricultural land, drainage, wildlife issues or how development on this site would impact on the rural landscape, then you can make your views known direct to the inspector.”

Anyone keen to address the hearing must alert the parish council or Wrington Village Alliance.
