Plans to build almost 60 homes in a village will be decided by a housing inspector in September after North Somerset Council took too long to decide.

More than 150 letters of objection were submitted against Redcliffe Homes’ 59-home plan for Coxs Green on the outskirts of Wrington.

The developer took the option to appeal against the council on the grounds it had taken too long to make a decision.

The council’s planning committee will meet on Wednesday to discuss what representations it should make at the hearing.

The appeal will start on September 26 and is scheduled to last six days.

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

That alternative plan has merited a similar amount of opposition.
