The people overseeing the construction of a new community hall in Congresbury have been praised for their hard work, as North Somerset Council formally approved the plan this week.

The hall will be built along with parking spaces and a community café on the King George V Playing Fields, off Stonewell Drive.

The plans have been developed through the Community Right to Build (CRtB) order process, and the council formally made the order at its most recent meeting on Tuesday.

However, the order could only be made following a referendum where villagers voted in favour of the plans. This took place in September.

The proposal was developed by the Congresbury New Village Hall Development Trust.

Its efforts were praised by Congresbury councillor Tom Leimdorfer, who said: “The applicants, who have steered this through, need to be congratulated on their hard work and their bravery.”
