Second vote over Congresbury housing plan

PUBLISHED: 07:17 08 February 2017


Plans to build 50 homes in Congresbury will be debated for a second time by North Somerset Council today (Wednesday).

The Wrington Lane scheme will be decided at an appeal in March by an independent inspector because Gladman Homes’ scheme was not decided on by the council quickly enough.

However, ahead of next month’s planning inquiry, the council must tell the inspector what decision it would have made.

In January, the planning committee went against the council experts’ 11th-hour advice and voted to say it would have rejected Gladman’s scheme. Because it went against officers, the matter must be debated again and another vote taken.
