Villagers were out in numbers to learn more about housing plans for Congresbury.

Congresbury Residents’ Action Group (CRAG) welcomed more than 70 people to a meeting ahead of this month’s appeal hearing into Strongvox Homes’ plans to build 24 houses off Brinsea Road.

The plans were rejected by North Somerset Council, but Strongvox hopes the decision will be overturned at the inquiry from November 21-22 at Weston’s Royal Hotel.

A CRAG spokesman said: “Secretary Viv Tomkinson asked residents to support the council’s defence against the Strongvox application to build off Brinsea Road.

“Even if they did not wish to say anything, their presence alone would help the cause.”

CRAG also offered updates on the approved developments for Cobthorn Way, Wrington Lane and Smallway, while Congresbury Parish Council delivered the latest on the neighbourhood plan, which it said ‘still has some way to go’.
