An action group is calling on villagers to 'stand up to another speculative development scheme' at an upcoming housing inquiry.

Strongvox Homes plans to build 24 houses off Brinsea Road in Congresbury, but North Somerset Council refused planning permission.

The developer has called for an appeal, which will be held at Weston’s Royal Hotel, in South Parade, on November 21-22 at 10am.

And Congresbury Residents’ Action Group (CRAG) wants residents to make their concerns over the ‘unsuitable’ plans clear at the inquiry.

CRAG chairman Mary Short said: “It is important to demonstrate the strength of feeling against these speculative applications.

“Just being there on the first day will send a strong message to the inspector.”

CRAG also announced it will hold a public meeting at Congresbury Methodist Hall, in High Street, on Wednesday at 7.30pm to update villagers on housing developments.
