Plans for a new village hall have been scaled back to alleviate concerns of people living near the site and to reduce the project’s cost.

Neighbours to the King George V Playing Fields approached the Congresbury New Village Hall Development Trust amid fears over the centre’s proposed height.

The trust since worked with architects Stride Treglown to alter its plan. The proposed roof height has been reduced to satisfy neighbours to Stonewell Drive.

Trust spokesman Ian Sheppard said: “We have to be realistic and while the footprint will be reduced, the new building will still meet the project’s vision of providing the village with the multi-use facilities it desperately needs.

“There will be space for expansion when required subject to the necessary permissions.

“As part of the Community Right to Build order, once the final plans have been agreed they will be submitted to North Somerset Council who will publicise these for consultation.”
