Wrington villagers will be able to address a housing inspector ahead of a ruling which will determine whether 59 homes can be built at Coxs Green.

Redcliffe Homes’ bid to build has been rebuffed by North Somerset Council, but the 
firm has appealed the decision so the inspector will decide 
if planning permission should be given.

The six-day hearing will start on Tuesday at Weston Town Hall but it will include a session at Wrington’s memorial hall. It will start at 5.30pm on Thursday.

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.
